Food Technology is an essential subject for any student because they gain cooking as an essential life skill. As well as understanding of personal hygiene and a knowledge of different beliefs and cultures surrounding foods. Graham Grange’s students will be exposed to contemporary issues around food and a working knowledge of nutrition and how it contributes to a person’s health and wellbeing. Students are inspired and challenged to imagine and create a range of dishes by being exposed to a variety of cultural and celebratory dishes.  

Students will develop their culinary skills and their critical thinking skills to develop their own recipes and menus for varied audiences. Food Technology develops student’s literacy, numeracy, communication and emotional literacy skills as students embark on teamwork in a kitchen. These skills are key to further education, in working life and living, fulfilling and healthy lifestyles. This NCFE (GCSE) course sets students up for a career in catering, but the skills are transferable to many areas of work like construction, business and management.
