Year 9 pupils will be starting the FoodWise Short Course in their Arts & Crafts lessons.
The FoodWise Short Course gives candidates the opportunity to develop and accredit their practical cooking skills, as well as building knowledge of a variety of food-related issues.
The flexibility of ASDAN's Short Courses means they can be carried out in a variety of settings, over a time period to suit the individual or co-ordinating centre (up to 60 hours). Challenge descriptions can be interpreted and adapted according to the situation.
This Short Course can be completed using the student book or is available for learners to complete online through the ASDAN e-portfolio system. Learners log in to complete challenges, record skills development and upload evidence. Tutors can view learner progress and sign off work, leaving feedback as needed.
