Bakery & Patisserie Advanced
BAKERY & PATISSERIE ADVANCED
This industry is firmly in the spotlight thanks to the continuing popularity of TV shows including The Great British Bake Off and Masterchef. Famous chefs are now seen as international celebrities, with the likes of Raymond Blanc and Gordon Ramsay being known for their personalities as much as their culinary skills.
Whether you’ve got a passion for French patisserie or are all about different types of bread, you can look forward to a rewarding career full of opportunity and creativity.
What will I do
Patisserie students will learn to craft intricate and delicate baked goods, with the chance to enter national competitions. From extravagant display pieces, to frozen desserts, cakes and sponges, you will become a well-rounded and multi-skilled patisserie chef.
Health and safety will be at the forefront of everything you do, as you will be working and learning in our industry standard Claire Clark Academy patisserie kitchen. You will experience all different areas of the industry and receive first class support from our highly-experienced tutors, who will share their experience and employer links with you.
The great thing about studying art and design is that it will offer you a range of transferable skills. You will be perfectly positioned to study art at university-level, either through an HNC/HND pathway or through a specific art school. You could also go on to study a different form of art, including graphic design, photography, fine art, or animation. You can also move straight into the industry, using the connections and contacts you’ve made throughout your course to help you secure employment.
Is it for me?
Do you watch programmes like the Great British Bake Off and know that you could do it better? Are you famed for your brownies or blondies? If you’ve got a passion for all things sweet and the determination to get a taste of the culinary industry, learning in a live environment is a great place to start.
You must be able to take direction and work as a team, often in heated (literally) environments where you have tight deadlines to work to. You must be a logical thinker, be reactive to situations and have creative flair.
You will have chances to enter national competitions, create your own menus, and gain the relevant skills and experience to help you stand out from the rest.
