Careers on the Rise
Our SUPREME Flour Siyabhaka Academy is an 18 – month program where students are carefully selected from across South Africa. They will receive an NQF2 and NQF3 qualiﬁcation where they receive practical and theoretical baking skills that are largely sought after in the South African baking industry.
LET’S SEE WHAT SOME OF OUR PREVIOUS SIYABHAKA ACADEMY GRADUATES HAVE GOTTEN UP TO SINCE GRADUATING!
Meet Mpho Sono, he is currently working as a junior baker with SUPREME Flour, with hopes to be a technical advisor in the future. Some of his day-to-day activities are assisting with new store openings and reopening, provide support with test bakes and work with the technical advisors on store visits.
He had the following to say about his time spent with the Siyabhaka Academy
“It gave me the opportunity to learn practical and physical baking skills which made me more employable for the future. There is a necessary skills shortage in South Africa of skilled bakers and the academy helped me to develop my baking knowledge and skills”.
Another one of our previous graduates Asanda Mdyogolo who is currently employed as a junior baker with SUPREME Flour, had this to say about her time at the Siyabhaka Academy and the role that it played in her career.
“The Siyabhaka Academy helped me understand how to work with a team and to solve baking problems quickly. The beneﬁt of the academy is the technical advisors, who assisted us with developing the necessary baking skills to control a situation and work well under pressure”.
