Food Studies

Designed by Jamie Oliver in partnership with Edexcel, this qualification aims to give you the basic skills and knowledge to be able to cook for yourself in a healthy way for the rest of your life.

Qualification profile:

• Consists of two single unit BTEC qualifications at Level 1 and Level 2

• Both qualifications are fully funded on the QCF and contribute to Performance Points

Online Teacher Support Materials will accompany the course. They have been designed with teacher-ease in mind. They are user-friendly enough for those teachers without a home economics qualification to be able to teach, while at the same time providing exciting content for more experienced teachers and those who already have a good knowledge of food and cooking.

Level 2
