SUPREME Flour Siyabhaka Academy Class of 2022
Welcome to the SUPREME Flour Siyabhaka Academy Class of 2022!
This February the Siyabhaka Academy welcomes 14 new learners on their baking journey. These students have been carefully selected from across South Africa to take part in this 18-month program. Our students will receive an NQF2 and NQF3 qualification and in addition to this, they will receive practical baking skills that are largely required by the current baking industry.
The Siyabhaka Academy offers learners that opportunity to gain experience in both an in – store bakery and classroom environment. They are also provided with the mentorship and guidance of our technical advisors and have access to the highest quality flour and training.
The Siyabhaka Academy is one of two academies in South Africa that offer a bread, flour, craft, and confectionary baking qualification. Some of the skills that the learners will be exposed to are the practicality and theory behind bread, rolls, sweet doughs, frozen products, and food handling.
Let us hear what some of our new students have to say about their new journey.
Nosipho Mbatha stated that she is “excited about this opportunity because I’ll learn more and gain experience in the baking industry which will help me utilize my skills and provide more for my community by creating opportunities for them too. I hope to open my own bakery one day”.
Rendani Ramaru is looking forward to transitioning from a home baker to a professional baker. She is looking forward to being involved in the wonderful process of transforming a raw ingredient like flour into tasty baked products that everyone can enjoy.
Mixo Manamela stated that he is privileged to be working with such a big company like SUPREME Flour and having the opportunity to acquire new baking techniques. He cannot wait to learn how to make a caramel swiss roll!
Sandra Garner, Learning and Development Specialist stated that “the quality of the learners has improved, and we are finding more people applying that are really passionate about baking. The in – store bakery controllers and shop managers, where the learners are placed for practical training, are very eager to place them once they have completed their program. This is due to their positive attitude and expansive knowledge received from the program”
We wish our new leaners luck on their baking journey!
