1 Year Patisserie Apprenticeship Course

Applications for 2025 NOW OPEN!


“Work for the best while learning from the best!”

A very intensive one-year course where students work whilst studying.  Students are employed in only the very best patisserie kitchens under SA’s top pastry chefs. Students also attend lessons at the Silwood campus, 2 – 4 days a month.

Trainee Salary – Students are employed by the establishments in which they are placed and receive a basic monthly salary.  They are subject to the same terms and conditions as full time employees.  The hospitality industry works nights, weekends and public holidays.

Classes are held on Mondays from 7am to 5pm over 2 semesters.

Silwood graduates are sought after, as they not only have practical culinary skills, but also have a respect and good understanding of the cost of food. This is achieved by making the students responsible for the purchasing and costing of all the ingredients needed for practical classes, whilst staying within the given budget. These skills are fundamental in the running of a successful kitchen or food business and are best taught by doing, rather than textbook reading.
