New GCSE in Cooking and Nutrition Announced
A new GCSE in cooking and nutrition will be taught in schools from September 2016 alongside the reformed GCSE in design and technology. The new GCSE will require pupils to acquire a proper understanding of the scientific principles behind food and nutrition, and use a number of practical cooking techniques to prepare and cook food.
