Level 2 Apprenticeship
Bakery is one of the most dynamic and fastest growing sectors of the food industry. There are many varied employment and career opportunities such as traditional craft baker, patisserie chef, or product developer for a specialist shop or supermarket. You may even opt to set up and manage your own business.
Our 12-18 month apprenticeship programme will allow you to learn to make a wide range of baked goods and breads, using craft and mechanical processing methods. You will be employed in the sector and supported by the college training programme, to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours required to work to high professional, quality standards.
Within the apprenticeship there is a Level 2 Baker Diploma (12 to 18 months) that needs to be completed and passed before the end point assessment.
Students also need to have passed Level 1 and attempted Level 2 English and Maths before the end point assessment.
