Patisserie & Confectionary is something I’ve always been interested in. When I saw that Suffolk New College was offering this as a new course I grabbed the opportunity. I have enjoyed making friends who have the same passion and interests as I do. Another advantage is that you are given the opportunity to retake your Maths or English GCSE alongside your chosen course.
The Learning Curve offers a wide range of resources and support to help towards assignments, exams or for your own leisure. The College is in an ideal location for all public transport, close to the town centre and also has a car park.
