“We feel the Philippines is a great destination to open up an academy looking at the number of Filipinos working in hotels within and outside the Philippines. We want provide organized and structural training for students looking for a career in the hotel industry, pastry shops, and those who want to put up their own businesses,” he further said.
The training at the Academy, according to Chef Niklesh, prepares students to world class skills Manila has never seen before. “We can provide an even higher level of training here at 40% of the cost students spend in other local pastry schools. In the next six to nine months, our students can be at par with seasoned hotel pastry chefs in the Philippines,” he said confidently.

The Academy of Pastry and Bakery Arts Philippines are offering full-time and part-time (weekend) programs.
The full-time program includes a three-month certificate course in Pastry & Bakery, a six-month diploma course in Pastry & Bakery. Both programs will run for twelve weeks and graduates will receive an international certification from the City & Guild London.
The part-time weekend program will run for 12 weekends with a new topic to be covered each week.
“The program is cyclic, so that if you miss one, you can take it up later in the next cycle. This makes it very convenient for working people,” Chef Niklesh concluded.
