NCEA L2 Hospitality Studies

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs C. Brown

Recommended Prior Learning

Hospitality in Yr11 would be helpful. However, should you have a passion for the subject and have the correct work ethic, then exceptions may be granted after speaking to Head of Food and Head of Faculty.

Food Technology in Year 12 provides students with the opportunity to achieve Industry Training Unit Standards in Cookery and Hospitality. The Service IQ unit standard workbooks provide the assessment tasks. Students are to study the assessment information and ask the teacher to clarify any points. These unit standards contribute towards tertiary qualifications and many are studied at tertiary institutes and for modern apprenticeships. There are opportunities for students to gain part time employment in the hospitality industry this year and in Year 13. Students will need to participate in catering for events on a few occasions.

Field trips to food and hospitality industries in Marlborough enhance knowledge of food production, special dietary requirements and food service skills.
