Required Prior Learning

Students should have achieved at least 14 credits in L1TEFT and need the approval of the HOD. If you are unsure have a chat with Mrs May.

This course follows on from L1TEFT.  Students will engage in the development of food based products using the technological processes of planning, conceptual design, technological modelling, prototyping and evaluation to explore the formulation of processed food based products. This will further their problem solving, creativity and the development of practical skills enabling them to communicate design ideas and formulate solutions to identified issues in a particular context.

Students can gain up to 16 credits. Students will be internally assessed to L2 Technology Achievement Standards. Technology is an approved domain subject and is appropriate for students intending to study at university.

L2 Technology Food can be selected along side any L2 Hospitality/Cafe based subjects.

Students may also have the opportunity to participate in a Culinary Experience Tour to Melbourne, Australia at the end of Term 3.  Details to be decided with some fundraising towards costs.
