Video: Cooplands benefits from own bakery college

14 January, 2013

Chris Wainwright, production director at Coopland & Son (Scarborough), revealed to British Baker, in an exclusive video interview, the benefits of the company setting up its own bakery college.

The firm saw a group of 15 bakery apprentices complete year one of its first in-house training programme last November.

Wainwright told British Baker about the benefits of Cooplands conducting its own specially-designed Diploma for Proficiency in Baking Industry Skills.

The company has selected two course tutors to conduct the Diploma, both of which have spent time working in Coopland’s factories to understand in detail the manufacturing systems and processes. This has been implemented to deliver content specific to the business’ individual requirements.

Catherine Postance, a Level 3 NVQ apprentice at Cooplands, who was awarded with the first Apprentice of the Year accolade at an awards ceremony at Hull College, said undergoing the bespoke course was a benefit to her career going forward, due to having the comfort of the name of the business behind her.
