13 Food Technology

13FTE
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss S. Brooks

Year 13 Food Technology is a course combining the creative aspects of Food Technology with advanced practical techniques and skills. The course offers 20 credits in a university entrance approved subject (Technology).

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.

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


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.


Recommended Prior Learning

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