L3 Technology Food

L3TEFT
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs L. May

A student centered course dealing with real problem solving in a practical environment. The students establish their own client for whom they use technological practice to produce a creative practical solution. 

The students will break the client’s issue down into key factors, then research possible solutions and apply that research to the development of the final practical solution. Students will work predominantly with food based ingredients although there is a possible scope to extend into other mediums. 

There is a clear focus on carefully planned, well designed and produced outcomes. This course would be ideal for any student wishing to either progress to university or undertake any food or technology based career. The students will gain practical skills from this course.

Students can gain up to 16 credits. Students will be assessed to L3 Technology internally assessment Achievement Standards. Technology is an approved domain subject and is appropriate for students intending to study at university.
