Artisan Baking Diploma Makes The Grade

Posted on August 09, 2016

The School of Artisan Food in Nottinghamshire has secured national recognition for its Advanced Diploma in Artisan Baking. FDQ, the specialist awarding body, confirmed their accreditation of the School in May 2016. This accreditation endorses the quality and integrity of the course, and will open up further funding opportunities for student loans.

FDQ are pioneers of the most innovative qualifications in the food industry. As a regulated qualification, recognised by the FDQ, students can be confident that the course will meet challenging standards.

Sheila Russell, Head of Studies at The School of Artisan Food said: “We’ve been running the Advanced Diploma course for six years and in that time we’ve had graduates set-up their own successful bakeries, artisan food businesses and work within other leading food companies in the UK and world-wide.

“Having this official recognition from FDQ gives the Diploma even more kudos and endorses the high quality teaching and course content.”

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.

As a registered charity, the School fundraises for student bursaries and over £460,000 has been awarded since the course began six years ago. Applications are now being taken for the next course which begins in September 2016 and bursaries are still available.

Anyone interested in finding out more about the Advanced Diploma can register to attend one of the School’s open days or contact the School directly (01909 532171 / [email protected]).
