Student Profile
Steph Corfield

Level 3 Diploma in Bakery and Pâtisserie

School: University College Isle of Man

Next step: Degree in Bakery and Pâtisserie at Reaseheath

Ambition: Cake shop owner

“I’ve always wanted to study bakery and I chose Reaseheath because of its great reputation and specialist food facilities. The practical sessions are the best. We’ve made different breads, cakes, tarts and pastries and I’ve also developed good skills in cake decorating.

“I enjoyed visiting the Cake and Bake Show in Manchester and we’ve been to commercial bakeries too. I also had a great work experience in a family run bakery making bread, doughnuts, eclairs and pies.

“I love living in. Reaseheath has such a friendly community and I’ve made a lot of new friends. The lecturers are very good too.”
