Course DescriptionThis course is a great introduction to baking, covering basic problem solving and production skills. It includes large scale production of cakes, pastry, bread and biscuits in a commercial baking environment. Students will complete competencies from the Food Processing qualification with a baking focus. The training environment will simulate a retail bakery. Students will gain practical skills in dough preparation and produce various breads and Hot X Buns. They will also learn how to make, various savoury and sweet pastries, doughnuts, meringues, macaroons, various cake fillings and decorating skills. Students study core units which focus on WHS processes, food safety, quality systems and procedures, environmentally sustainable work practices and workplace information. Students will need to work with others, in teams, as well as on their own; or students will need to feel comfortable talking to a range of different people (communication) whilst doing their work and standing for extended periods of time. This course has 70% practical activity and 30% theory. Although students do get to try the food that they make, they need to remember that they are baking to learn, not to feed themselves. This course could see students continue their learning as an apprentice or by specialising in bread baking or cake and pastry production.
PathwaysRetail Baker, Pastry Cook, Chocolatier, Pastry Chef and Food Quality Assurance Officer. By completing this course students will be well equipped to approach employers regarding further training as a School Based Apprentice or as a Trainee in a Food Processing (Bakery) environment. They may also approach employers for full time employment with increased confidence.
