Who is the qualification for?


This qualification is suited to those learners who want to enhance their hobby/interest and potentially use as a basis for self-employment (set up own business, thus give credibility), OR work or want to work in cake decoration (a bakery or junior chef) – it also forms a great stepping stone to those who wish to progress to Levels 1 and 2 Certificates and further develop their skill set.


City & Guilds is a recognised world-wide qualification – no other qualification offers the same credibility!
