Hello, I have been teaching this since the specs changed( am a food teacher really).

We are struggling with A912 as it seems so broad( I think because the topics sometimes don't have definitive/factual answers). Can anyone recommend good resources or textbooks to work from. We have got a copy of most new things- but we find some of the textbooks are contradictory and don't relate to the answers that are on the markschemes for the exam.

Any help/advice/ sample schemes of work gratefully received ( I can share resources back if you like)- this unit pulled our marks down this year and I want to make sure our department is doing the right things. 

thanks

I am new to teaching this course, and am teaching this unit, so I would also appreciate any help or advice.

So far I have looked on TES and HSCshare websites for resources, if anyone knows of any other good websites for H&SC resources could you please let me know?

Thank you,

Jenny

Hi Jackie,

 

Would you be able to share your SOW with me as well please? I am conscious that this is my first time delivering the course and want to make sure I am on the right track!

 

Thanks,
