Bakery student Dionisie Vilcu
From work experience in the college’s Academy bakery to work experience in Florence, twenty-year-old Dionisie Vilcu has come a long way since moving to the UK from Moldova four years ago.
As part of the course he did a work experience placement in Academy bakery and liked it so much that he decided to learn more! He enrolled for the Level 2 diploma in professional bakery in 2015 and has just completed the Level 3 qualification – during which he got the chance to work in Florence for two weeks as part of the Easmus+ programme.
Dionisie, who used his bread making skills to make pizzas in the busy Boccanegra restaurant, said: “It’s a great opportunity to come to Italy and experience the culture as well as learn some traditional skills.”
