Health & Food Technology Advanced Higher
The Health & Food Technology course at Advanced Higher level is made up of 2 Units.
These units are assessed individually throughout the year. Our students work is carefully checked to ensure it meets the assessment standards set by the SQA and we have a rigorous verification process to ensure the work is of the required standard.
The units studied are:
1. Food For Health
- Food Science, Production and Manufacture
In addition to the 2 units, Advanced Higher students will complete an Assignment which is externally assessed and marked by the SQA.
This is a comprehensive piece of work and students begin this task in November. It comprises of several sections and it is vital that the students meet the deadlines set for each section.
Students are expected to work independently whilst studying for an Advanced Higher qualification and to take an increased responsibility for their learning.
There is increasing emphasis on individual research and students need to organise their schedules to ensure that they are able to complete work on time.
Students complete a 2 hour written exam which is externally marked.
