L2 Hospitality A

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs L. May.

Required Prior Learning

Open entry but at the discretion of the HOD.  It is beneficial that students have completed a course in L1 Hospitality and/or L1 Technology Food.  Prior performance will be considered.

This course recognises the competence, knowledge and skills required for cooking routine food dishes in a commercial kitchen.

Students will be able to demonstrate a range of foundation cookery methods and a limited range of preparation techniques, using pre-prepared and ready prepared products, under supervision. This course offers both a theoretical and practical application of knowledge and skills required in the hospitality industry. 

Students will demonstrate their ability to comply with health and safety legislation, various practical cookery skills and a range of interpersonal, presentation, numeracy and literacy skills required by workers in a simulated commercial kitchen environment. This course is separate to L2HOSPB and students are assessed using a different set of Unit Standards.

This course is internally assessed by Unit Standard credits at L2 from Service IQ - the Hospitality Industry Training Organisation. Both theory and practical skills are assessed. These assessments are different to L2HOSPB. Students can take both if they wish. This course is designed to compliment L2CAFE which has a front of house focus.
