Trainee Bakers get the Ingredients for Success

Budding Bakers at Tameside College were given an insight into the Science behind Baking when two baking experts from Bakery Ingredients Manufacturer, Zeelandia visited the college to provide bakery masterclasses. The purpose of the visit was to allow students to gain valuable knowledge and skills that will help them continue their studies and gain a career in the baking industry. The first masterclass saw Nick Harrison, Technical Sales Manager at Zeelandia showcase the ingredients and process for making Zeelandia's version of the doughnut and croissant hybrid treat, the "Zeenut" to level two bakery students. The second masterclass focused on the science behind breadmaking with level two bakery students which Andrew Taylor, Bakery & Development specialist and Adam Davies, Bakery Technician from Zeelandia presented. Visits like this from Zeelandia are vital for the development of Tameside College students as it gives them a better understanding of the baking industry and allows them to learn from a well-established organisation. Andrew Taylor from Zeelandia said " We had a fantastic session at Tameside College and the students were engaged and keen to learn." Lorna Jones, Curriculum Leader for Bakery at Tameside College said "The students thoroughly enjoyed the demonstrations and it was great for them to understand how bakery ingredients play a role within industry. We look forward to working with Zeelandia in the future. It is these links with employers that help our students to really understand how the sector operates and prepared them for employment."
