Food Technology GCSE at Christ The King College
The focus of Food Technology is on the design and development of food products. Students learn to design and make food items and project work will include researching, testing, packaging and marketing products as well as ensuring the practice of making skills.
Students will have the opportunity to work with a wide range of food materials, learning about their characteristics and working properties. This will help in the development of design and making skills. All students will also look at how foods are processed and manufactured on a large scale. The course builds upon the knowledge gained at Key stage 3 and allows students the independence to develop their project work to meet their own interests.
The Food industry is Britain’s biggest employer, thus career opportunities are very broad but include development chefs, food manufacturing, retailing, hospitality, catering, dietetics, nutritionists, home economists and teaching and much more.
