The NQ Practical Bakery and Cookery course helps you develop your skills in Professional Cookery and covers the presentation, preparation and production of dishes. Additionally, the course provides an opportunity for you to study a range of SQA Bakery Units. This is a unique opportunity to gain an insight into two diverse curriculum areas before choosing to specialise in either Bakery or Professional Cookery. It also gives you the chance to work in our fully-equipped training kitchens and bakeries to improve your bakery and patisserie skills. Furthermore, you will be given an opportunity to enhance your cookery skills in our Bistro, which is open for breakfast and lunch every day. All bakery produce is sold through City Market, so you will gain experience in making commercially acceptable products.
During the course, you'll gain the skills and knowledge to work in the catering industry, or to progress onto either a professional cookery or bakery course. The Lecturers delivering both the professional cookery and the bakery elements of the course are qualified, experienced industry professionals who have the knowledge and skills to enhance your learning experience and equip you for the world of work or further study.
The course is placed on the Scottish Credit Qualifications Framework at Level 5. For more information on the framework visit: www.scqf.org.uk/the-framework/.
