Level 2 Cake Decoration

​Due to ABC introducing a substancial charge for the support they give we have had too increase our fees, this has increased the weekly class to £25 a session (less than £8.33 an hour). Payment for this course has been seperated into 5 week monthly payments of £125 payable by direct debit to be set up on enrolment over 7 months (with additional administratuion fee paid on entrance).  WE hope this payment plan eases the costs for our students as we still feel this is excellent value for an excellent run course - having no control of costs incurred or lack of government funding.

​New for 2018: online tuition This is a new exercise for 2018, we appreciate every week attendance can be a bind, so we are offering students the opportunity to attend lesson by web camera. More details to follow or email for information

The ABC Level 2 Certificate in Cake Decoration is the follow on and natural progression to the Level 1 Award in Cake decoration and is based around 4 units that assess both practical ability and theoretical knowledge of cake decoration competencies. Please note we will be ofering this course as a long distance learning programme as welll which means the student can attend lesson via skype, but must be able to attend the centre to present work for assessment of each module. Details will be given on induction but you can email if interested.

The qualification has a 19 Credit value.
