Our training

SYB’s free, comprehensive 11-month training programme aims to equip students with valuable technical and life skills, empowering them to build successful careers and become financially independent.
Based on the French “alternance” training model that is very popular in Europe, students alternate between 2 weeks of classes at school with 2 weeks of practical internships at international 5-star hotels for the programme’s entire duration. While the programme focuses on traditional French and western bakery, it also includes a Chinese pastry course leading to an official certificate recognised throughout China. Finally, students also take classes in life skills and English to improve their ability to adapt to and succeed in different work environments.
Due to the growing demand for qualified bakers in China, our graduates are able to find promising jobs in high-end hotels, restaurants and bakeries.
