Bakery students at Barking College have played a starring role in an educational video commissioned by Morrisons.

The supermarket recently sent a film crew to the college to capture what it takes to train the bakers of the future.

The aim of the video is to inspire and inform young people about the quality of the training and the development opportunities available for a career in grocery retailing.

Barking College has trained all of Morrisons’ bakery apprentices from across the south east for the past four years. The course takes nine months to complete, with students able to achieve an NVQ qualification in Bakery Skills which has been especially designed for the supermarket chain by City and Guilds,

Bakery tutor Raymond Morum commented: “We’re only one of four colleges working with Morrisons, and to be featured in their film is a great privilege. As an experienced baker, it’s wonderful to have the chance to pass on my knowledge to students, and to know that the traditional skills of a baker are still valued.”
