Although next year timetables are yet to be finalised, course selection is now finished. Any changes to student courses will now take place in January.

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss S. Brooks

Food Technology is a UE approved subject and helps students to acquire the skills and knowledge used in the field of Nutrition, Dietetics, Food Technology, Food Science, Product Design and Hospitality. 

The course has two main areas of learning:

PROCESSING and PROTOTYPE: Students learn a range of processing techniques to process a complex food product and experiment with a range of ingredients, equipment and techniques.These include testing, trialling, skill development, ingredient manipulation, yield and health and safety. 

BRIEF and CONCEPTUAL: Students explore contexts to determine an issue, need or  opportunity. Research, idea generation and development is carried out to decide an innovative solution to the issue. Students will work side by side with a range of stakeholders as well as consulting with a technology specialist. 

Course content: Students will complete 2 projects during the year including:

  • Street Food - Students will process and prototype a complex food product for Fia Fia night. 

  • NZ Food Problems - Students will research, design, develop and produce a food product to solve an issue ranging from food poverty to dietary requirement. *This project can be submitted for scholarship if it meets the standard


Note: AS 91610 and AS 91611 are also used in 13DET therefore it is advisable not to take 13FTE AND 13DET.

Students with known food allergies will need to discuss with the HOD an action plan for managing this in class before taking part in any practical lessons.




Recommended Prior Learning

Completion of a Food technology or Hospitality course at Year 11 or 12 or by pre-approval from the HOD.

Course Costs and Equipment/ Stationery requirements

We would like to provide extra ingredients to enhance learning and we encourage a voluntary payment of $80 to cover these. Students will get to consume or take away the items they produce.

Students will also need to maintain credit on their print account during the year to support this course and it is strongly advised that students have their own container weekly for practical lessons.
