SACE Website:  https://www.sace.sa.edu.au/web/food-and-hospitality

Pre-Requisite:  Completion of Stage 1 Food and Hospitality Studies is desirable but students with sound research, literacy and practical (hands-on) skills would suit this subject (prior skills in cooking are desirable but not essential).



Stage 2 Food and Hospitality focuses on the contemporary and changing nature of the food and hospitality industry. Students critically examine contemporary and future issues within the food and hospitality industry and the difference influences surrounding these at local, national, and global levels. This is an excellent subject choice for those wishing to work within this industry at a range of levels or develop their own practical skills.

Topics may include

  • political and legal influences
  • economic and environmental influences
  • contemporary and future issues
  • technological influences


Students are assessed through the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE).

7 assignment tasks will form the basis of the assessment and students will be assessed against the SACE board assessment design criteria.  

Each task will involve 3 elements:

  • 4 x practical activities
  • 2 x group activities
  • 1 x investigation

Additional Information

Costs: $100 subject fee.

Students will be required to participate in two activities outside school hours as part of their assessment.

In some instances, students may wish to bring extra ingredients and materials for presentation of work to supplement those provided by the school. This is not compulsory as appropriate materials are provided at school.

While there are no pre-requisites for this course, some knowledge and skills in food preparation would be a great advantage.

All subject costs are subject to approval, are approximate and subject to change in 2023.
