Senior Baking is one of three food production and/or service subjects. It is offered in conjunction with TAFE Queensland to Year 11 and Year 12 students. Students enrolled in this course will be working towards a Certificate II in Retail Baking Assistance FDF20510.

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

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