Food Technology

The Health Food Technology Department– what it is all about….

Health & Food Technology is a subject which belongs to two areas of the Curriculum for Excellence; Food Product Design and Contemporary Food Issues are from the Technology area of the curriculum while Diet And Health are at the centre of Health & Wellbeing.

The principal aim of the Food Technology Department is to develop and promote skills of independence and confidence in the areas of food preparation, life choices and product design. Pupils’ experience in Food Technology will also develop an awareness of the differing needs of individuals in the wider sense: assisting in their preparation for living independently and for taking responsibility for others.


Accommodation

The department has two extremely well equipped Food Technology kitchens; one of which benefits from an adjoining classroom area.

In S4 pupils can follow one of two routes, these being: Health and Food Technology; or Hospitality Practical Cookery – depending on which area of the Broad General course they have enjoyed.
