Food Qualifications

Why AQA Food ?

Our qualifications in food will equip students with the knowledge, understanding, skills and encouragement they need to prepare and cook food.

GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition will give them the ability to apply the principles of food science, nutrition and healthy eating.

Students will be able to make informed decisions about a wide range of further learning opportunities and career pathways, and develop vital life skills so that they can feed themselves and others affordably and nutritiously.
