On Monday, 21 July 2014 in Shanghai, students of the sixth class of Shanghai Young Bakers gathered to celebrate their graduation.
The famous singer mandopop Dantès opened the ceremony with a live performance! Throughout the evening, students were also able to showcase their talent and creativity through a tasting of their achievements and a bread decoration competition.
The graduation ceremony, eagerly awaited by the students, was presided by Emmanuel Lepain, Consul General of France in Shanghai, accompanied by Xu Benliag, Director of the Training Centre. This year's was a brilliant class since 100% of the 28 students passed the course! Over 85% of them have already found employment with the majority as a pastry-chef-baker in 4 or 5 star hotels.
In early September, the new class of 32 students supported by Solidarity Accor started the academic year. We wish them the same success as the previous year!
