Tue, 06 October 2009
Alexandra Edwards, a student from Tameside College’s Bakery School was invited by Unifine to visit their quality Centre in Milton Keynes. Alexandra is currently studying on a Level 2 Bakery programme.
At the Centre, she was taught professional cookery techniques, introduced to specialist materials and shown the creative and unique ways that they make their products. Alexandra previously studied at Copley High School.
Bakery tutor Lorna Jones said “She is a very able bakery student who was selected for the course because of her creative ability. The opportunity to send students on courses like this is as a result of the hard work and dedication of the bakery staff and students. Although this is just for one student, at the moment opportunities of this nature are becoming increasingly more frequent.”
Alexandra commented “I would recommend this programme to my fellow students because I was treated really well and learned a lot which will help me in my future career.” She went on to say that the opportunity to visit the industry was excellent and very enjoyable, helping her to develop new skills. She learned how to make a whole range of products including citrus tarts, cheesecakes, Florentine biscuits, desserts and best of all handmade chocolates. Alexandra hopes to reproduce the chocolates for customers in the Portland Bakery College shop.
