You must be between the age of 14 and 17 to join the programme and you will need to wear appropriate clothing to maximise safety, we request that you do not wear jeans or opened toed shoes. At the end of each session, you’ll be able to take home the food you’ve created, and maybe even share some of it with your family.

Cost is £80 per child. Uniform and all ingredients are included in the price. Please note that the Junior Baker course takes up to 12 students so it will be based on a first come first served basis. Participants will be given a college certificate on completion of the course and receive feedback from the tutor.
