WJEC Level 1/2 Hospitality and Catering  

Contact: jwetehrill@eat.uk.com 

According to the British Hospitality Association, hospitality and catering is Britain’s fourth largest industry and accounts for around 10% of the total workforce. The ability to plan, prepare and present food is an essential skill within the hospitality and catering industry. The WJEC Vocational Award in Hospitality and Catering equips you with theoretical knowledge about the industry as well as enabling you to develop practical skills in planning, preparing and cooking a variety of dishes. 

Each of the units of the WJEC Level 1/2 Vocational Award in Hospitality and Catering have been designed so that knowledge, skills and understanding are developed through tasks that have many of the characteristics of real work in the sector. There are two mandatory units within this qualification.

  • Unit 1: Hospitality and catering industry: You will focus on learning about different types of providers, legislation, food safety and the roles and responsibilities within the sector.  
  • Unit 2: Hospitality and catering in action: You will develop practical skills for planning, preparing, cooking and presenting nutritional dishes to meet specific client’s needs. 

Each unit has what is referred to as an applied purpose, which acts as a focus for the learning in the unit. They have been devised around the concept of a ‘plan, do, review’ approach so that you take part in practical activities in different contexts in order to learn the related theories. This approach mirrors many work-related activities in the hospitality and catering sector and also provides for learning in a range of contexts. As such, the qualification provides you with a broad appreciation of work in the hospitality and catering sector and wider opportunities for progression into further education, employment or training.
