Hospitality & Catering

Our Curriculum Intent 

The Hospitality and Catering department will bring out the best by ensuring students develop knowledge of practical skills and processes in order for them to become resilient and independent young adults in the world of hospitality and catering. These skills will be recalled upon, throughout both units, continually building on prior learning. This allows for innovation and creative development, to meet the design brief set by the exam board when undertaking the Hospitality and Catering Vocational Award. We have planned and prepared lessons at Three Rivers Academy to reflect upon student’s local environment and support them in the wider world. This gives our students vital life skills that enable them to feed themselves and others affordably and nutritiously, now, and later in life. We engage with students to encourage them to understand the environmental factors which affect the inequalities in food distribution on a global scale and give them an understanding of the need to minimise ‘food waste’ starting with their own practice.
