Scholarship Success for the Second Year Running
Wed, 14 July 2010
Bakery student, Cameron Potts has been successfully selected for the prestigious ‘Hovis Scholarship Award’ which provides students with first hand bakery experience working with industry professionals.
Rank Hovis created the scholarship to give one student in England an all expenses paid learning experience, to improve their knowledge and to provide expertise in a range of disciplines. The selection process for the award involved an observation of Cameron working in the college bakery plus an interview, where he discussed with the industry his career aspirations.
The scholarship, involves Cameron travelling around the UK visiting bakery institutions including flour mills, testing centres and local independent bakeries, as well as larger chain bakeries. Bakery Tutor, Lorna Jones said, “Cameron is the second student from the college to win the scholarship award and the entire Bakery department are very proud. We strive to produce quality students who are confident and skilful and the fact that external companies are recognising this is a testimony to the standards we continue to achieve.”
Cameron has also just returned to college from an all expenses paid trip to Milton Keynes to study chocolates and desserts with Unifine. This award was sponsored by the industry and offered Cameron the opportunity to visit the technical centre and learn new techniques available to the Baker using the high quality products that Unifine Food & Bake Company produce.
The course was a two day programme of instruction where the demonstrator of the company showed Cameron and other course delegates handmade chocolates and appetising gateaux.
