Our missions are:
- To respond to a lack of schools and access to bakery training in many countries through digital learning
- To provide interactive digital teaching, easy to use, allowing the learner to acquire the fundamentals at one’s own rhythm and digital devices (computers, tablets, and smartphones)
- To promote the French sector (Bakers, Trainers, Suppliers) in France and abroad
- To help the French actors in the sector, thanks to Baguette Academy’s know-how in the field of Blended Learning and digital training
- To promote the exchange among international bakers
And ‘Le Génie’ Editions?
Le Génie Editeur is the specialist in teaching tools for professional and technological schools, from CAP to BTS (French professional certifications).
We offer teachers and students from the baking industry pedagogical tools online with programs of the national education in a modern way.
Designed by teachers for teachers, our methods accompany teaching practices in the classroom or remotely, allowing realistic integration of new technologies and interactivity through animations.
3/ Why a collaboration between Le Génie Éditeur and Baguette Academy?
Frederic Percheron is a CFA professor (French training program) and author of several professional books in bakery and pastry making, who is constantly looking for interactive solutions in teaching. Therefore, he is the creator of the link between Le Génie Editeur and the start-up Baguette Academy with the objective of creating a digital course for teachers and students of CFA and professional high schools in pastry and bakery sector.
Le Genie Editeur is recognized in teaching for the quality of its catalog of educational books. Baguette Academy, for its part, has developed an expertise in the digitization of pedagogical contents of the food industry.
From a meeting at the SIRHA 2017 of the two respective founders Olivier Perrier and Emmanuel Tertrais, a few months later, the first online courses in bakery pastry for professional diplomas were born and made available starting from September 2017.
Teachers and students can thus alternate learning between books and digital platforms. There they will find the 17 chapters on the ingredients of volume 1: Bac Pro Bakers and Pastry Chefs: Raw Materials, equivalent to 8 to 16 hours of reading.
Soon to follow will be volume 3: Bac Pro Bakers and Pastry Chefs: Professional Techniques available at the end of September.
- Benefits for teachers and apprentices
On one hand, learners benefit from a more flexible learning via a digital learning method, since they have access to content 24 hours a day from their computer, tablet or smartphone. Learners remain in a familiar digital universe using their own nomadic tools, those they use daily in their personal life.
Thus, learners can at any time review the key concepts and access interactive content, which improves student involvement and allows them to advance at their own pace.
On the other hand, teachers have more choice in the training medium used on a daily basis. Thanks to a personal account, they can also access the entire online program, which they can also enrich with documents and internet links.
Teachers can also follow the progress of their students on the digital platform and exchange with them.
Editions Le Génie Editeur is thus the first to offer the professional high schools – professors and apprentices – the benefits of e-learning in their training program in the pastry and bakery sector.
In this way, Baguette Academy enriches its catalog of online courses www.baguetteacademy.com for professionals of the bakery and pastry sector.
