Added Value Unit Assessment

The Hospitality: Practical Cookery Added Value Unit assessment is a practical activity. It is supported by SQA-devised recipes, so centres should not normally make any changes to the assessment, in which candidates plan, prepare and serve a two-course meal according to given recipes, safely and hygienically.

Centres can choose from a bank of these assessments, designed to suit a wide range of requirements, available from September 2013. Centres can access the assessments through their SQA Co-ordinator.

As with all SQA Unit assessments, Added Value Unit assessments must be internally verified by centres.
