The reputation and calibre of students trained at the School of Artisan Food in Nottinghamshire has helped secure seven job offers for the existing cohort. The Advanced Diploma in Bakery students have just returned to the School after serving a four week placement at various UK bakeries and are looking forward to their final weeks before they begin their new baking careers.
Sheila Russell, Head of Studies at the School said: “This is now our third year of running the Advanced Diploma which is equivalent to a University level qualification but it’s a lot more intensive as we run the course over ten months.
“We’re delighted to have secured job offers for seven of our students which is testament to the skills and knowledge that we pass on to our students and their dedication and commitment to learning and valuing artisan food production methods.”
Julian Carter, Head Baker at Hambleton Bakery, one of the School’s placement providers said: “How nice it is to be able to oversee work experience students from the School of Artisan Food. They are so keen, arriving with sound technical knowledge and are always very useful members of our team. We do miss them when they leave!”
The Advanced Diploma students come from a wide range of age groups, backgrounds and ability and are taught by some of the top professionals in the UK, including Wayne Caddy who has represented the UK at the baking Coupe du Monde and regularly judges at competitions.
