Mandatory units

  1. Preparing to Cook (H/506/7550)
  2. Understanding Food (K/506/7551)
  3. Exploring Balanced Diets (M/506/7552)
  4. Plan and Produce Dishes in Response to a Brief (T/506/7553)

Internal assessments will go ahead in 2021/22, therefore moving away from results being based on Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs) used in 2020 to 2021, where this has been permitted. Students need to prepare a portfolio of evidence. We encourage centres to review our guidance on the types of evidence, and evidence capture, that we permit including e.g. the use of video, photos and other digital means of demonstrating knowledge and skills.

For further information please see the 2021/22 adaptation addendum document below.
