Tameside College help leading bakers from Roberts Bakery train their workforce with Bakery Excellence Programme.
The seven bakers who completed the programme were treated to a sit down, three course meal in the college’s restaurant as a celebration of their achievement.
During the celebration each baker was presented with a certificate by skills development officer, Ken Hamblett and bakery consultant, Neil Burgess.
The course which includes a blend of practical and classroom based elements helps Robert’s Bakers to develop their bread, dough and flour skills and is exclusively designed for their employees. It also allows them to develop specialist techniques such as Chorleywood bread processing.
Roberts Bakery, based in Cheshire, makes 80 million loaves per year and provides the service to businesses and supermarkets throughout the north-west and beyond.
Steven Lee, bakery teacher at Tameside College, said: “I am really proud of the Roberts Bakery staff for completing the course. It shows that Tameside College is at the forefront of the bakery industry and that we are the place to be for industry expertise. Well done to them all.”
Ken Hamblett, said: “Roberts Bakery is a growing business and for our staff to take part in a specialist course like this is fantastic for us. We are really pleased with the result and hopefully we will be putting seven more of our bakers through the course next year.”
