Hospitality & Catering


Our Level 2 Hospitality & Catering course builds on skills and knowledge developed at KS3. This course puts learning and development in a real-world context and directly links skills and knowledge developed in our industry style kitchen with future level 3 courses and/or apprenticeships. We aspire for students to take this course and take the necessary steps towards a career in the hospitality & catering industry. This course also allows students the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of health and safety in the in the hospitality & catering industry, the technical knowledge required to plan, design and implement a variety of menus (including the application of maths and science) and the roles required in hospitality & catering industry (e.g. front of house, sous-chef). When students enter our industry style kitchen, they will enter a learning environment that is designed to simulate the day-to-day workings of the hospitality & catering industry.

How and when is my child assessed?

Twice a half term, teachers will mark a student’s ‘portfolio’; this could include physical pieces of work, e-portfolios (including photographs), an account of skills that have been demonstrated/observed, and/or the student’s sketchbook/exercise book/logbook.

Formal marking at these two stages will provide students with WWW/EBI feedback. The EBI provided should either inform the student of a target to meet in the next piece of work, or an action that can be applied immediately to improve the current piece of work.

Marking of student sketchbooks/exercise books/logbooks will use WWW/EBI to identify next steps. In addition, teachers will appropriately identify areas for improvement with regards to literacy (Sp) and will use EBIs, so as to plug gaps, correct misconceptions and/or push students even further.
