Darren Bate


I deliver NPA Bakery to senior phase students, the course includes baking, cake decorating and pastries. Pupils undertaking this course can gain skills that are transferable to everyday life. You aren’t here to be master bakers but learn skills that you can use for the rest of your life.

I love teaching at Moray College UHI, many of our students come in with zero confidence and seeing them develop academically and grow as a person to leave to go into employment makes this job worthwhile.

About me: I’ve got a small catering business that keeps me engaged with the chef community and development of my own personal skills. I also scuba dive off the coast of Moray for lobsters, mussels etc.

Unusual fact about me: I have 14 screws and a rod in my left leg the result of a motorbike accident.
