The FoodWise Short Course can be undertaken by young people of all abilities, mainly aged 19+.
It is ideal for students who are interested in cooking and enjoy learning in the classroom or in a kitchen setting.
Topics include cooking, budgeting skills, entertaining and working in the food industry.
Who is it for?
Young people of all abilities, mainly aged 19+.
Because Short Courses are multi-level, the focus is on completing challenges and skills development according to individual ability, rather than attainment at a specific level.
