Contemporary Cake Designs will be at Gloucestershire College's Apprenticeship Open Evening tonight.Fast track your career at Apprenticeship Information Evening

Gloucestershire College is inviting young people and their parents in to its Gloucester Campus this March to learn about apprenticeships and meet the employers looking to recruit them.

The Apprenticeship Information Evening – Gloucester Campus on Wednesday 22 March 2017, from 5.30pm to 7.30pm

Guests to the Apprenticeship Information Evening will get the chance to explore the different types of apprenticeships available through the College, including degree-level apprenticeships. They’ll also have the opportunity to visit six industry zones, where they can speak directly to the Gloucestershire businesses who will be recruiting apprentices in the coming year and find out about the roles on offer. Prospective apprentices can even apply for live vacancies on the night.

The apprenticeship zones are:

  • Construction and Motor Vehicle
  • Engineering
  • Health, Social Care and Early Years
  • Catering and Hospitality
  • Professional Services and Creative Industries
  • Retail

Companies from around the county will be represented at each of the zones; amongst them will be construction employers: Clarkson Evans, EG Carter and Complete Utilities; engineering firms: Spirax Serco, Poeton and Leoni; financial businesses: Hazlewoods and St James Place; as well as caterers, The Patisserie Box.

The GC Apprenticeships Team will be on-hand on the night to explain the different levels of apprenticeships and qualifications you can achieve as an apprentice. They can also offer insight into entry requirements, typical wages and the career paths an apprenticeship can lead to.

Current apprentices will be sharing their experiences in their current roles and answering questions about life as an apprentice.

Julie Tegg, Head of Work Based Training at Gloucestershire College, said: “Myself and my team of apprenticeship experts are very excited for the Apprenticeship Information Evening, which will provide a real insight into how apprentices work and the wide range of opportunities with local employers.”

“We will be joined by employers from a diverse range of industries at our six apprenticeship zones, including those who currently train GC apprentices and those who will be hiring an apprentice for the first time; all of which will be looking to take on new apprentices in the next year.

“The event will give prospective apprentices the chance to talk face-to-face to employers for a real insight into what they are looking for, and even apply for current vacancies in person.”

The Apprenticeship Information Evening is free to anyone considering doing an apprenticeship and parents are welcome to attend. Book your place at the event at: www.educationthatpays.co.uk

We look forward to seeing you there!

How to bake great cakes

Xavier Pelloux- award winning Patissier, explains how to bake a great cake.

Xavier Pelloux- award winning Patissier, explains how to bake a great cake.Such is Xavier’s devotion to producing the finest pastries and cakes that he refuses to take short cuts that might make his life easier.

And while this may add a few extra hours to the processes involved in making his Continental-style treats, he says the difference in the taste, texture and appearance is well worth going the extra mile.

Xavier’s training equipped him to execute every aspect of the pâtissier’s art, including creating stunning croquembouches and exquisite wedding cakes, all of which are finished to incredibly high standards.

“You have to be a maniac to do this – it’s all about the detail,” says Xavier, as he applies tiny pieces of gold leaf to a batch of French-style opera cakes. “Pastry is more about science than cooking. Everything is carefully calculated – every ingredient is weighed out to the milligram – and there’s a reason for everything we do.”

“Precision is very important and I think that’s what sets us apart. Everything we do is made by hand.”

Xavier’s quest for perfection starts with the ingredients he uses, such as responsibly-sourced  sea salt from Anglesey, for which he makes the just over 400-mile round trip himself. At the same time he buys locally whenever possible, such as the freshly-laid eggs he gets from Cooper’s Hill near Gloucester.

“Everything in our products is made by us, whether this means making our own buttercream from English butter or separating eggs ourselves rather than buying in ready-to-use egg whites,” he explains.

“We get through at least 1,000 eggs every week. We buy locally as much as we can – we think it’s important to support the local economy – and I refuse to buy in anything that’s ready-made.”

“For me the ingredients are key and I always look for the freshest and best quality ones I can find.”

It took around three years to get the wedding cake business off the ground, but this aspect of the business was to prove to be just the tip of the iceberg when they heard in 2013 that the new Gloucester Services was looking to sell Continental-style pâtisserie.

Since then the bakery has gone from strength to strength, with Xavier and Bee taking on an apprentice and additional employees. They’re now planning a second kitchen to keep up with the demand and hope to take on a further trainee by the end of the year.

“We cannot keep up with the demand for the macaroons – as soon as we’ve made some there’s an order for more,” laughs Xavier.

“We’re now getting through five kilos of ground almonds a day. Sometimes I start work at 3am and finish at 10pm to keep up with demand, but I’m used to it: when I was a kid we always started early and I’ve never regretted it. It was a great way to acquire the knowledge and skills that keep me busy today.”
