A Bakery apprentice will learn how to make a wide range of breads and baked goods using both traditional craft and more modern methods. They will learn the history of bread and pastry making as well as developing their knowledge, skills and behaviours in relation to working efficiently and confidently within a bakery environment. These disciplines will include a greater understanding of ingredients, equipment, processes, timings and bakery techniques.
