Cornish Baker first in England to achieve Level 2 Craft Baker Apprenticeship

19/6/2020

Jason Bennellick, of Prima Bakeries, Scorrier, has become the first bakery apprentice in England to successfully complete the L2 Craft Baker Apprenticeship, achieving a Merit grade.

The L2 Baker Standard contains three distinct routes, one of which is Craft Baker. This specialism was designed to revive traditional craft bakery skills, which the apprentice must prove in their bakery end-point assessment.   

Supporting Jason in his apprenticeship learning and end-point assessment preparation were Truro and Penwith College. The college introduced the Baker Apprenticeship Standard in 2018, in recognition of the importance of the baking industry to the Cornish economy.

Baking Lecturer and course developer, David Williams, who himself has 40 years’ experience in craft bakery said he was ‘very proud’ of Jason’s achievement. He added,

‘It has been a pleasure to work alongside Prima to develop our Bakery Apprenticeship programme and deliver the skills needed in the workplace’

Prima’s Managing Director, Mark Norton, described the bakery apprenticeship as ‘exemplary’ and that Prima were keen to take on a new apprentice to help build the future of craft baking in Cornwall.
