Please note the UMS required for the N grade was incorrectly listed and has now been corrected August 2019.

Our qualification is the only food/catering qualfication on the DfE 2020 Performance Tables for post-16 learners.

The Department for Education (DfE) has confirmed that those qualifications approved for inclusion in the 2020 performance tables will also be included in performance tables for 2021 and 2022.

View the DfE 2020 Performance Tables list here.

Answers for the Certificate 'Test your knowledge' questions are now available and can be accessed by visiting the Illuminate Publishing website, clicking on the 'Food, Hospitality & Catering' tab and then on the Certificate book's page. The link is about halfway down the page. Alternatively the answers can be accessed via this link.

Update July 2019: We are aware that DfE has announced the withdrawal of funding for qualifications where a redeveloped version of the qualification has been approved. This announcement relates to the legacy (QCF) versions of our Level 3 Criminology and Food Science and Nutrition qualifications.
