WHO IS THE COURSE FOR?

The National Progression Award (NPA) in Bakery at SCQF level 4 develops practical bakery skills in craft baking, bread making, cake decoration and pastry making. This award is aimed at candidates who are interested in pursuing a career in the bakery or catering industries, but do not necessarily have any prior experience.

WHAT IS THE COURSE ABOUT?

This course develops practical bakery skills in craft baking, bread making, cake decoration and pastry making. If you are interested in pursuing a career in the bakery or catering industries, but don’t have any experience, then this would be an ideal way for you to start. 

You will be working in either a professional kitchen using industry standard equipment, a restaurant or in a classroom (if required). You will study the following SQA Course Units: Craft Baking: An Introduction, Bread Making: An Introduction, Cake Decoration: An Introduction and Pastry. 

You are required to wear appropriate clothing to meet current food safety laws when in the kitchen. You will need to bring this with you for every class or you will not be allowed to participate in the class. These will be provided to you, but you will need to wash these ready for the next class.
