Student Profiles

"I am planning to go to college after school to do cookery or baking so this specialised course is helpful.

I’ve already done practical cookery and cake craft in school and so I chose this to build my skills.

I’ve always enjoyed baking. I know how to do it but I want to get better. The professional kitchen is a good environment to work in. It feels proper."
