Food Science and Nutrition WJEC Level 3 at Cleeve School

Course description

Unit 1 will enable the learner to demonstrate an understanding of the science
of food safety, nutrition and nutritional needs in a wide range of contexts, and
through on–going practical sessions, to gain practical skills to produce quality
food items to meet the needs of individuals.

Unit 2 allows learners to develop their understanding of the science of
food safety and hygiene; essential knowledge for anyone involved in food
production in the home or wishing to work in the food industry. Again practical
sessions will support the gaining of theoretical knowledge and ensure learning
is a tactile experience.

Studying one of the two optional units allows learners the opportunity to
study subjects of particular interest or relevance to them, building on previous
learning and experiences.
