Baking

Senior High Baking is one of three food production and/or service subjects offered to Year 11 and Year 12 students in our Trade Training Centre in conjunction with TAFE Queensland. Students enrolled in this course will be working towards a Certificate II in Retail Baking Assistance.

The Certificate II in Retail Baking Assistance provides trade baking skills and knowledge for those planning to work in a retail baking environment with a focus on cakes, pastry and bread. This qualification is designed for application in supervised environments where the work is primarily predictable with some basic problem solving requirements. Typically this role would include some predetermined, routine baking functions with customer service and general preparation and cleaning skills.

Baking students will be required to participate in after-hours activities and bakery related work experience.

Assessment in Senior High Baking is competency-based. Students’ assessment in Baking, therefore, will not count towards their Grade-Point Average.

Senior High Baking runs on a 2-year cycle with a combined class of Year 11 and Year 12 students.
