A Diploma in Patisserie Enables Local and International Employment

It’s extremely difficult, if not impossible in some cases, to find employment anywhere in one’s chosen field without a formal qualification, so a Diploma in Patisserie is essential for aspiring pastry chefs.  Other qualities are important too, such as a passion for food and pastry, an eye for detail and the willingness to work long and hard, with enthusiasm.

However, full time, very intensive, quality training forms the essential basis for success. A course of 6 months’ duration is designed to enable newly qualified pastry chefs to find employment virtually immediately after graduation, since a substantial portion of their time will have been spent on the practical aspects of patisserie.

Theoretical knowledge is essential too, because no chef can be truly creative and innovative without it. Success involves more than following someone else’s recipes. A great pastry chef will be able to confidently create novel, exciting and interesting confections and pastries if a broad theoretical knowledge is also part of their culinary foundation.

The best patisserie schools, like the Prue Leith Chefs Academy, require learners to write and pass the school’s own examinations plus the internationally recognised City & Guilds IVQ Diploma in Patisserie. Graduates will be able to travel and work anywhere in the world with these local and internationally recognised qualifications behind them.

How many other professions equip one to build a career, work and travel extensively, all simultaneously?  With a world-class diploma that develops abilities and talents to a 5 star standard, graduates can obtain employment and confidently grace the tables of top restaurants with their innovative, beautiful deserts and pastries.

A sensitive palate might be an advantage, but with training, experience and practice, a discerning palate for sweet things can be developed to recognise which ingredients and flavours combine to perfection in the art of creative patisserie.

Imagine the supreme satisfaction of having patrons returning time after time to one’s establishment or restaurant, simply to indulge themselves in the confectionery and desert delights so passionately created by the qualified pastry chef, holder of an internationally accredited Diploma in Patisserie.
