The NAMB has opted to go with the Scottish Association of Master Bakers (SAMB) training providers, based on workplace training, delivered by accredited industry tutors and assessors.

Gill Brooks-Lonican CEO of the NAMB told delegates: "The SAMB has got training and expertise in craft bakery, and is putting in place a series of contracts with the Learning and Skills Councils, which will enable them to fund vocational training in the workplace for English bakers and with English assessors.
