GCSE Cooking and Nutrition qualification update
The content of our current Design and Technology - Food Technology specification is very different to that required in the new GCSE in Cooking and Nutrition, which aims to equip students with the knowledge, understanding and skills required to cook and apply the principles of food science, nutrition and healthy eating.
After careful consideration we have decided not to create or run a GCSE Cooking and Nutrition qualification. We will however continue to offer our broad range of vocational food-based qualifications. The Department for Education has confirmed that the title of GCSE Cooking and Nutrition will be changed to GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition and has published finalised content.
