The "Baker" vocational program is designed for adults who would like a career change and also for students interested in the bakery business. Running over a 6-month period, this work-study program focuses on the hands-on contents of the French national CAP certificate.

The Institut Culinaire de France offers a unique professional and entrepreneurial approach to learning. Imagining a new concept of bakeries, delighting customers with new healthy recipes, reconciling business development with sustainability: this training combines the technical and business knowledge that students will need in order to make their professional projects become a reality.

There are several key highlights in the training: welcoming the students and introducing them to the larger context of professional baking. Then, delving into hands-on practice and working under the supervision of renowned professional bakers (master bakers and Meilleurs Ouvriers de France).

Visa application

Once his admission is confirmed, the candidate will be issued an acceptance letter. This letter is required for his visa application in the French consulate in the applicant’s respective country. According to French law, any stay longer than 90 days requires a long-term visa. However, depending on his nationality, a visa may be required for any length of stay. This procedure might take a considerable amount of time. Therefore, we advise the future students to start their visa application upon the receipt of their acceptance letter.
