IPQ Training

IPQ Level II
Candidates will be expected to do at least 13 weeks of on-the-job training before being accepted onto the IPQ level II.

You will be learning from day one, completing training cards as you go. Those training cards provide evidence/background for the IPQ level II. The modules selected for the IPQ closely match the training cards.

After enrolling on the course an external assessor is appointed by the Craft Bakers Association, and assessments are done at our bakery. Although much of the training is done on the job, there is also coursework to complete at home. Many of our team have taken these qualifications and can assist in the tuition as you work. Pay is increased with the successful completion of each training card.

IPQ Level III
This course is aimed at bakery management and involves a lot more studying at home.
If you require further information please get in touch.

Other Training
For those not wishing to pursue formal qualifications – we generally offer supervisors/manager jobs to those with experience on the shop floor who can demonstrate an ability to organise/manage/supervise the work of others. This applies to all departments; admin, production, packing, order picking and transport.

We also offer training both online and off-site in Food Hygiene and Safety, Health and Safety, First Aid and Personal Development.
