If you want to specialise in this skilful, creative and demanding area of cookery, this course will teach you specialist pastry, cake and confectionery techniques with an emphasis on practical learning. You'll be learning in our specialist patisserie kitchen on equipment that you'd expect to find in the industry's top pastry kitchens. We enter several competitions as a way of boosting your creativity and skills - already our students have been successful and won awards so you'll be building on good foundations.

Some of the speciality items you'll create are:

  • Hot and cold desserts and puddings
  • Paste products
  • Biscuit, cake and sponge products
  • Fermented dough products.


There is a materials fee to cover the cost of food and materials you'll use for assessments. You'll need to buy uniform to wear on the course. Your tutor will confirm the cost of this when you come in for interview.
