Tesco bakery masterclassFrom January 2008 newsletter
Tesco Stores has embarked on a radical training programme across its 720 bakeries. Structured to meet the needs of new starters through to experienced managers, it will underpin craft skills and drive quality. The four-tiered programme starts at Bronze level and culminates in a 'Bakery Masterclass'. CCFRA is proud to have been chosen as the provider for the Bakery Masterclass series, designed for the managers of Tesco's 470 scratch bakeries.
The 3-day Bakery Masterclass was developed by working closely with Tesco's head-office team to ensure that delegates and ultimately consumer requirements are met. It is specifically designed to improve both the technical knowledge and practical skills of the participants. Following the first Masterclass at CCFRA in November 2007 (delegates pictured), a further twenty-seven courses are planned for 2008-09.
CCFRA's Paul Catterall commented “Our well equipped training bakery, our experience of training at all levels in the baking industry, and our ability to tailor training to meet client needs made us the ideal partner for Tesco”.
