Home Cooking Skills

Course Description

This Level 2 BTEC was developed in partnership with Jamie Oliver Ltd, to encourage people to cook with confidence and enjoyment.  You will learn how to prepare, cook and serve a two course nutritional meal.  You will develop cooking skills by exploring recipes for nutritious meals.  You will gain an understanding of how to economise when planning meals to cook at home. You are also encouraged to transfer skills by passing on your knowledge to others. Finally you will plan, prepare and serve a two course meal as part of your qualification entry. 

The course is delivered in twilight sessions on Thursdays after school 3.20-5.20pm

This will give you the confidence and knowledge to cook in your day to day life, it will also give you the self-belief to impart your skills to others. 

It is excellent preparation for independent living at university or when you leave home. 

There are no specific entry requirements for this course but an interest in food and cooking would be an advantage.
