Food Tech, AKA Cooking !

You learn the methods used in the food manufacturing industry, and about food safety, a bit about things like vitamins and stuff - then theres a coursework task which takes about 10 months, counting for 70 % of the final grade.

This involves making a food technology product, starting from the point of doing some small scale market research, meeting a specificiation, creating ideas, improving based on feedback, and then the importance of marketing.

A fair bit of time is spent on practical, and we made all sorts of sweets and savory dishes, as well as being treated by our member of staff to several "Continental Breakfasts", at the start and end of each half term !

Its a female dominated subject, as many males take Resistant Materials: Wood, Metal, Plastics or Automotive Engineering, or Graphics as their Design & Technology option.

Just curious but on your CV, how does everyone summarise their GCSE results. By that I mean do you list your subjects and the corresponding grades or do you write "GCSE's At Grades A-C" and then list your subjects??

Cool! I'd love to learn how to cook but have no idea where to start! (My gut instinct is to watch the cookery shows on telly...)
How come you chose this subject above the others? Your school offered well broad subjects! The most "exotic" GCSE we had was probably... hold on a sec, we didnt have any exotic subjects!

List them, looks far more impressive, plus if employers are looking for specific grade requirements for a certain subject this format allows quick and easy access to this information.

Has anyone got M/S certification (any type)??

If so, how difficult was it and did you pay for it yourself or did your school / college /uni pay??


PS - My CV currently uses the "GCSE's At A-C" format but Im thinking of changing it to seemingly increase its "impressiveness".

At the end of Year 9, when I had my GCSE options I got the choice of (one required from each of the following sections):

A Modern Foreign Language
Either French or German

A Humanity
Geography, History, RS

A Design & Technology Subject
Food Technology
Graphic Products
Automotive Engineering
Textile Technology
Child Development
Resistant Materials: Metal, Plastic or Wood.

Bottom Option
Drama
The other MFL that was not chosen earlier
Information Technology
Art & Design

Statistics was offered by my Maths teacher to the top set at GCSE Maths, to be taught in after school lessons, seemed a bit noddy looking at it, so I took it !

IT was the obvious option from the bottom box, Food Tech I already had shown a passion for at KS3, and I saw the need for it for when I wanted to go to Uni, and for the future, so I took that.

As for the Basketball awards they weren't offered by the school, I attended two one-day sessions at Notts Trent University (Clifton) about 1 year apart of each other, sat 1 theory exam, 2 practical assessment series, and paid all of about £50, which has more than paid itself back.

Im actually quite proud of my endless collection of B's. The only things I didnt get B's in were Maths (A) and History (A). I get the feeling that there is someone somewhere just paying the examining bodies just to ensure that I maintain a B average (this will not apply to my AS's which I will be impressed if I don't get a "U" average).

You have grades in the instruments you play. They are a qualification (essential for a music teacher).

Leekey's right, you have plenty of musical qualifications, you should always make a point of acknowledging yourself for them.
