Take the Bread Angels course to set up your own micro bakery

The Bread Angels course is 12 hours long.  You can choose between courses that run once a week for three weeks, or over a two day period.  There are benefits to both.  If you take a course to set up a bakery once a week for three weeks you can do some valuable homework and practice baking in between sessions.  If, however, it is difficult for you to find three consecutive weeks when you are free for half a day, the two day course to learn how to set up a bakery may be the right one for you.  Either way we are here to help you set up a bakery or a community bakery.

Participation is strictly limited so that sessions are intimate and cosy:  you have plenty of time and space to learn what you need to learn both from the course tutors and the other participants.

In the first lesson, students bake bread while learning, in details, about the ingredients and techniques involved in baking:

Why is some bread good for you and other bread is not?
What is gluten and why is it important?
What is fermentation and why is it important?
What is the Chorleywood Bread Process?
Why is some bread square with evenly spread, exactly sized little holes througout and some bread flat and holey?
What are the different kinds of grains - how are they different?
What are the links between good bread and good health?

We are here to answer all of your questions!

In the second lesson, students bake bread while learning  about establishing and growing their businesses:

What is your target market and how much bread can you sell?
How do you get customers?
How do you maintain customers?
How do you generate interest?
How do you approach people?
How do you build your business?
What is the world of social media (blogs, websites, facebook, twitter, etc) and how do you use it to help you?

We run our own businesses and so we know what we are talking about!  We have lots of experience coaching people to set up and run their business too.

In the third lesson, students bake bread while learning about the logistical and administrative aspects of running a businesses:

What is insurance and do you need it?
How do you register with environmental health and do you need a hygiene certificate?
What is the best way to collect money from customers?
How do you keep the books?
What about tax and the inland revenue?

Please believe us when we say it is easy to set up and run a business.  Come and find out just how easy it is.  Put your fears to rest.
