EFBPA (Ecole Française de Boulangerie et de Pâtisserie d'Aurillac) is a French bakery institute supporting SYB in defining bakery classes content and in training the SYB teachers. EFBPA has trained in total five outstanding SYB graduates (three in 2010-2011 and two in 2014-2015) at its facilities in Aurillac in order for them to return and teach the new batches of students.
In 2010, Alliance Française provided free French language classes to our 3 teachers so that they could continue learning bakery at the EFBPA in France. Since then, AF has become the French Language Training Institution for SYB, and by 2019, a total of seven SYB graduates going to France have recieved French lessons free of charge. Currently, AF is providing free French language classes to two SYB graduates, who will be furthering their training in France.
