Our instructors are specially selected for their expertise, qualifications and passion for helping others to become lifelong learners in baking. They inspire their students by walking the talk and behaving like professional bakers and lifelong learners both within and outside the classrooms. Students have given our instructors the thumbs up and some have insisted that they would like the same instructors for subsequent courses.
