SCAFA’s Professional Pastry program is the region’s only curriculum dedicated to teaching pastry to students aspiring to attain professional pastry standards. Classes run 5 days a week from Monday to Friday for 13 weeks. SCAFA’s Pro Pastry program is a combination of five teaching modules followed by a two week module comprising practical and online assessments. The program focuses on the key areas of bakery, pastry, cakes and desserts. By structuring our Pro Pastry program in this way students are able to decide if they want to focus on a particular area of interest, or, accomplish the full range of skills accompanied by an international diploma. When taken as a complete set of modules this is a 400+ hour program that focuses entirely on pastry and related areas such as the science behind pastry, pastry and baking basics, measurements, cake decorating, chocolate, sugar work, hot and cold desserts, bread and much more.
