The three-month course, which starts in October of this year, aims to teach students a range of practical skills over a full-time working week. Former Edinburgh Waldorf Astoria head pastry chef Chris Stewart (pictured, centre) will lead the course. Principal Ian Pirrie said the school is “very proud to offer this new diploma, the first of its kind in Scotland”.
