Turn your love for bakery and pâtisserie into a rewarding career.
If you have a passion for pâtisserie or just love to bake, studying at Reaseheath is the perfect way to develop your skills.
What’s particularly great about our bakery courses is that they are all primarily practically based, which means you’ll spend the majority of your time at college working in our bespoke bakery.
Our facilities are the same as you would expect to see in industry, and they include a breadmaking room, pâtisserie area, chocolate room and cake decorating room. From baking in our industrial sized ovens and preparing products for sale on campus to creating bespoke baked goods, confectionery and chocolates, no two days in the bakery industry are ever the same.

“I came to Reaseheath after GCSEs because I knew it would be the best place for me to learn the skills I needed. The college has a great reputation for its food courses and fantastic facilities, equal to any you’d find in industry.
“Learning in depth about making chocolate and bread was an eye opener, particularly at Level 3 when you learn about the science and methodology of baking.
“I got a part-time job as a chef at a restaurant while I was still studying and I was offered a full time job there as soon as I finished my course. There are so many careers in the food industry with opportunities for travel. In the future I may specialise as a chocolatier.”
