The schedule for our Diploma de Patisserie and the ‘Six Week Certificate Course’ are extremely rigorous with classes that begin at 8 a.m. and often go on until 6 p.m.
The emphasis whilst during the course apart from learning has always remained on punctuality, discipline, hygiene, respect for fellow students and chefs, and on appropriate behaviour. On days when there are no classes, the students utilise their time to complete and update any pending assignments or log books.
Through the day at Lavonne, students are thoroughly engaged with class activities which would include theory classes, practical classes, team briefings, end-of-day meetings, and most importantly cleaning their classroom once the day is complete.
During the day, students get two breaks, i.e. a 15 minute tea break and a 45 minute lunch break. Food is not provided for students at Lavonne. For lunch, students bring in their lunch or have it delivered. Most students, however, choose to pick up food from the Lavonne Café or even dine out nearby if time permits.
We presently do not provide accommodation for any students. However, we’d be more than happy to share contact details of reputed and trusted PG’s, hostels, hotels, rental agencies and serviced apartments in the vicinity. Students can visit these places and zero in on accommodation of their choice.
We provide career guidance counselling to all our students. The students would need to speak with their mentor for this purpose.
Learning at Lavonne happens inside the classroom as well as outside. We organise/conduct:
- Students’ field trip to an outstation cocoa plantation.
- The Big Charity Bake Sale.
- Video projects
- The buffet examination
- CSR activities with students
- Workshops with celebrity / visiting chefs.
- Graduation Day
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.
