Our bakery courses are developed in partnership with some of the profession’s major institutions. Among these are the Worshipful Company of Bakers – the City of London's second oldest recorded guild, dating back to 1155.
Many of our graduates look to build their own business and choose LSBU for our strong entrepreneurial interests.
