Key Stage 3
The KS3 curriculum provides opportunity for students to make a range of sweet and savoury dishes, using different methods, techniques and skills. Skills are sequenced to progress towards the Key stage 4 curriculum.
Every student is encouraged to work as part of a team or independently where possible to help improve their confidence and understanding of the subject. The theory and practical knowledge gained in KS3 will be the foundation for students to succeed in the Key stage 4 WJEC Hospitality & Catering Level 1 and 2 course.
