Careers in food graphic


Similar to GCSE the course is centred around developing skills and techniques in providing various services in the hospitality and catering industry. Both WJEC and GCSE Hospitality & Catering allocate a weighting of 40 per cent to external assessment and a weighting of 60 per cent to controlled assessment.

Practical tasks are used to simplify and reinforce theory, Written exam type assessments are frequently used to reinforce both theory and practical learning.


Feedback in Hospitality and Catering is through the 5 a day, verbal feedback as well as written feedback which is personalised for the individual.
