The below entry requirements are for domestic and international students. You must have:
- completed a Certificate III in a field related to commercial baking; or
- at least 3 years full time relevant employment in a commercial baking environment.
In addition to the entry requirements, international students must also provide:
- English Language Proficiency: Academic IELTS 5.5 (no individual band less than 5.0), or ISLPR 2+ on all skills or other. View a list of all English Language tests accepted by TAFE Queensland International; and
- Academic requirements: Completion of Year 10 (or equivalent). Non school-leavers must have relevant work experience or qualification that indicates likely success of course completion. View more information on the international education achievement levels equivalent to Year 10 and 12.
International students should be a minimum of 18 years of age. Student visa applicants under the age of 18 will be accepted where they demonstrate that they will be accompanied by a parent, legal custodian or a suitable relative who is aged 21 or over. This arrangement requires the approval of the Department of Home Affairs. For more information visit the Department of Home Affairs - Welfare arrangements for students under 18.
It is recommended that you have access to a reliable internet connection to access TAFE Queensland's online learning system Connect, and a computer with up-to-date software, including Microsoft Office, Adobe Acrobat Reader and Adobe Flash Player. This equipment and software is available for use at all TAFE Queensland locations.
If you are not currently employed or volunteering in industry, during your course you will be required to complete vocational placement so you can start practising your new skills in a real-world environment. You’ll be required to work shifts determined by your placement provider, and these can include early mornings or late nights, any day of the week, including public holidays. TAFE Queensland may be able to assist in arranging suitable placements.
Completing placement is compulsory, and you will be expected to manage family and work commitments in order to complete your shifts. You are required to complete 120 hours of placement to satisfy this component of your qualification.
Need to know
At sign up when the Training Plan is being negotiated, if it is determined that the workplace cannot provide all training, then apprentices may need to travel to Brisbane, South Bank campus for training. This travel would be at the apprentices own expense, but may be subsidised by the Queensland Government.
