Trainee Baker James has a diagnosis of autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) and anxiety. He also has a moderate learning disability.

James' love for working in the bakery was immediate. With his inquisitive mind and thirst for knowledge, he very quickly grasped a variety of baking techniques and learnt to make a wide range of products. When James is in the bakery, he can often be found laughing and chatting with the rest of the team while he works and frequently shares ideas of different bakes to try.

The Bread & Beyond team are ambitious for James and have a wealth of excitement to see how his bakery journey will progress.
