The Worshipful Company of Bakers is asking employers to urgently put forward candidates for three awards for expenses-paid trips to the renowned Richemont School in Switzerland.

The Piero Scacco Award is given to two individuals. The Abim Award, from the Association of Bakery Ingredient Manufacturers, is for one person. The Joseph Travelling Award is for one mature applicant.

Recipients of all three awards will depart for Switzerland on 17 October and return on 21 October 2010. The trips will include a two-day English-spoken course on decorative breads, marzipan modelling and chocolate at the Richemont School.

Closing date for applications is 22 April 2010! Contact: The Clerk, The Worshipful Company of Bakers, Bakers’ Hall, 9 Harp Lane, London EC3R 6DP; email: or tel: 020 7623 2223
