The hospitality and catering industry is the largest growing sector in the world, but there is a shortage of skilled staff within the industry.
Students who take Hospitality and Catering take part in practical cooking activities to practise, hone and learn new cooking skills. Alongside this, students study the content for the examination, unit 1 – the hospitality and catering industry – which includes learning about the vocational sector and applying this to a set scenario where students consider hospitality and catering provision for specific locations.
Students will also look at how establishments operate efficiently, legally and financially whilst meeting the needs of their clients. Students then apply their knowledge to safely prepare, cook and present nutritional dishes.
