Course summary

This course will help you develop the skills to become a successful baking technologist: you’ll garner specialist managerial skills, which are linked to the commercial and technological aspects of the baking profession. This specialist course focuses on the process by which new products are developed. New product development (NPD) is the engine driver of the food and beverage industry. Baking is a highly technical skill and a qualification in this field will make you an attractive prospect to employers.

This course will enable you to be able to work in different organisational contexts and manage the manufacturing and baking service or product from inception through to the marketplace. During your course modules, you’ll be assessed through a mixture of essays, assignments, in-class problem-solving exercises, case studies and practical and theoretical exams.

This course is widely recognised across the baking industry – and thanks to our working partnerships – you’ll find plenty of opportunities when you graduate. You’ll be well equipped to start up your own operation, run a small business or work in an international food company. In the current climate, there’s significant need for graduates who have the technological competence along with a creative flair to allow for innovation within NPD and research – and graduates from this course have exactly that.

The majority of bakers in the UK are employed in plant bakeries and in-store bakeries. These tend to be large companies, where opportunities for further training and career progression tend to be more positive. Prospects for promotion in baking are good, with options available to move into supervisory roles, production management roles or into an advisory role – depending on which area of bakery you specialise in.
