14 - 16 Years

Welcome to the 14-16 Years area, which builds on the learning from the 11-14 Years area. Here you’ll find resources to support the teaching and learning of food with young people. They have been developed to be used by teachers to stimulate pupil’s interest in food, as well as support key food qualification specifications across the UK.
