Training and Education
Have you ever witnessed the way a true craftsman judges his products? The product is being broken, the texture is being felt and looked at. Thereafter the nose goes in the product. As a final check-up is tasting the product. Then the craftsman can make a decision on what kind of ingredients there are used, and what he needs to improve. So that in the end he will be satisfied with the quality of his product.
It is the experience that we want to give our students. To use all your senses. And let yourself be led by the product in its processes and ingredients.
In our training programs, we start with a basic product. And from that base we build it with the subject of the course. Every day we start with the theory, so that we can put theory into practice that you have been taught earlier that day. At the end of the day we close with an evaluation, so that we have a good vision on what we have learned. For the following day we will refresh earlier lessons and continue building your knowledge.
A balanced approach of theory and practice, makes that you’ll leave with more experience and know-how & why to your bakery before you came to us.
We offer courses in every level of bakery technology, from Introduction to more Advanced.
Most of our courses, given at location of your choice, are based on ingredients and processes. Training on the job, focusses specifically on your production line and its products.
Some people are blessed by learning from a book, understanding it immediately and are able to transform this new knowledge to their daily practice. For most people this is not case or not entirely the case…: seeing how it’s done, exchanging experiences with other people create a better and enhanced understanding of knowledge. This is exactly the strength of offline courses:
- Interacting with your course leader(s)
- Interacting with fellow course followers
- Different environment and atmosphere compared to regular work situation
By visiting our Innovation Centre or coming to our partner ZDS in Solingen, Germany, we create an environment where all can be asked, mistakes are allowed and seen as obligatory to learn.
When training on location is limited. We believe that there is always a way and the possibilities of online training are endless. By phone or virtual meetings we can still make big improvements. Bakery Academy is there to support and guide you in the right direction.
