Design Technology: Food

Design Technology: Food is a practical subject which requires the application of knowledge and understanding when researching, analysing, developing ideas, planning, manufacturing food products, and evaluating them. The course allows students to work in a variety of learning styles, it encourages independent and interdependent learning, and the development of creativity and independent thought. It challenges existing perceptions and investigates and encourages the use of new ideas and ingredients. The course allows students to take control of their own learning and prepares them for the world of work.
