The Craft Bakers Association (CBA) has launched a new website designed to showcase the benefits for its members.

One of the key features of the new website is easier access and use of the CBA’s online training programme, which is discounted for members. The programme allows members to coordinate training for themselves and their employees while tracking progress and downloading certificates.

The CBA’s new site also has a dedicated area for members wanting to offer students practical experience, promote job vacancies and find candidates to join their team. Meanwhile, those seeking employment can submit their CVs to be connected with relevant opportunities.

In addition, bakery students are able to apply for a CBA membership and develop their skills in the dedicated student area of the website. The new website also offers a page showcasing all CBA industry supporters, providing details of their services.

“We are passionate about the baking industry and keen to pass on our knowledge and expertise to future generations,” said Karen Dear, director of operations at the Craft Bakers Association. “The CBA is here to assist the industry, be it through supporting our members and newly qualified bakers, championing our cause, sharing opportunities and offering a place to network, or simply demonstrating our craft to others.

“The Craft Bakers Association has been the voice of craft bakery for nearly 150 years, working with the government and other bodies to safeguard the future of the sector, and the new website is the latest chapter in acting out that commitment,” Dear added.

“From savings on third party services such as training and health and food safety, to HR and legal advice, membership of the CBA makes great business sense, and the new website takes it a step further, making it even easier to come on board and get more out of your membership.”
