Baking

Bakers are made at VCC. Our baking programs mix theoretical baking principles with practical learning to ensure students are highly skilled and able to troubleshoot errors and manage product outcomes. It is this winning combination, along with a dedicated faculty and a student-run bakery that make our graduates sought after by the baking industry.
