Home Economics

 

 

Home Economics at the Integrated College Dungannon provides all students the opportunity to learn about diet and health, the home and family, consumerism and managing resources. It aims to help students develop an understanding of people and of their basic needs for food, shelter and personal relationships. Within this framework, education in Home Economics equips young people with knowledge and skills which will enable them to make reasoned and informed decisions for themselves concerning the management of available resources to satisfy the needs and priorities of everyday life.

All pupils study Home Economics in Year 8, Year 9 and Year 10. Pupils can then choose the subject at GCSE (OCR syllabus) and subsequently at A Level (CEA syllabus). GCSE Home Economics (Food and Nutrition) students are also provided with the opportunity to complete a Certificate in Basic Food Hygiene.

Home Economics is a popular subject in the curriculum at the Integrated College Dungannon, with increasing numbers at AS and A2 level for both Home Economics and Health and Social Care

Students learn through a variety of activities including groupwork, practicals, investigations, videos, demonstrations, competitions and research.

The department has two well-equipped rooms where the environment inspires learning.

At all Key Stages there are opportunities to involve various outside agencies e.g. Energy Advice Service, Environmental Health Dept., Loughry College, Gingerbread, Dairy Council, Livestock and Meat Commission, N.I.

Extra Curricular
Mrs Sleeth and Miss Butcher run an after college cookery club to further improved students skills in a more informal environment.
