Select year group

Year 10 Jamie Oliver Home Cooking Award Level 2

This course gives students the knowledge, skills, and confidence to enjoy cooking meals at home. Students will gain an understanding of how to economise when planning meals to cook at home. They will be encouraged to transfer skills learned to other recipes to continue cooking for themselves and their families and to inspire others by passing on their knowledge.

This course is based on chef Jamie Oliver’s proposition that being able to cook is an essential life skill that empowers people to make changes that have benefits to health and wellbeing.
