The Level 3 BTEC course allows students to build on work they have done at GCSE or Level 2 BTEC in preparation for university study or entering employment. Students will have the opportunity to take their skills to a new level and explore the latest developments in areas such as European and Asian food. The course blends studying all aspects of the industry at a local and national level through project work with the opportunity to put these new skills into practice through running the school?s own Bistro business providing great food and service to members of the school community and visitors.
