Our Level 1/2 Award in Food and Catering is designed to give young learners a hands-on introduction to life and work in the catering industry.

Learners will develop, practice and demonstrate key food preparation skills, making a variety of food products. They’ll learn how to scale up production to produce larger quantities suitable for a commercial setting and get to demonstrate their skills through two internally assessed projects.

Although this qualification won’t be included in performance tables for 2019, we’re offering these Level 1/2 Awards to schools and colleges as we believe they are valuable qualifications for practical learners.
