A focus on theory

Theory lessons at Lavonne are intensive and form an integral part of our diploma programme. Students take a formal examination after every module, as well as complete internal assessment projects regularly.

Regular Assessment

At Lavonne, learning is but a means to a significant end. Regular assessments take place in the form of projects, record book journaling, and assignments, scrutinised and graded by our in-house chef-instructors.

Run a student café

The Lavonne Student Café is the first-of-its-kind student-run set-up in the country. Managed entirely by our diploma students, the aim of this appendage to our already intricate syllabus, is that our students leave the portals of Lavonne, fully equipped to take on the world of entrepreneurship in the fields of bakery and confectionery.

Internships & Placements

While we equip our students to be able to take on roles in 5 star pastry kitchens or set up their own proprietorships, given our niche in the industry, students are assisted in securing internships and placements on completion of their diploma program.

Professional Affiliations

Being India’s first exclusive international baking academy, Lavonne is affiliated to the City & Guilds, London. All graduating students of the Diploma program receive two certificates, one from Lavonne and the other from City & Guilds, London that is recognised across the world.
