Whilst undertaking observations of trainee design and technology teachers in a variety of settings across the North West of England, we have encountered an increasing rise in the number of schools offering catering as part of a varied and diverse range of curriculum options within the suite of design and technology subjects studied across KS3/KS4 and into KS5. This short article seeks to highlight and celebrate just one of these examples. It looks at the rationale behind the investment in catering as a Key Stage 4 option, both in terms of capital spend (from the point of facilities and rooms) and staffing. Clearly these should be framed against the successes achieved by the young people at the school in question.
