Food Technology (Design & Technology) at Elizabeth Woodville School
This course takes the form of both practical sessions and in-depth written work. Students will study basic nutrition and the Government Recommendations for a Healthier Nation. They will also study the needs and wants of different target groups and how food manufacturers accommodate them. The use and function of ingredients in different commercially produced products will be researched, along with the Health and Safety aspect of the manufacture of these products. SMART foods will be investigated and how their innovation has affected the food industry. CAD and CAM and its use in the food industry will also be studied. Students will follow the different stages a food product goes through, from the initial idea produced by the food technologist, to the final product found on the supermarket shelf. The course work will take the form of a design and make project, following the different stages associated with the design process culminating in a good quality finished product. Students should also note, that they will be expected to provide their own ingredients for practical sessions, except for experimental work.
