Hi Eliah ,
Know the specialities. Speciality of a baker solely is to make bread, rolls, cookies, and quiches whilst the pastry chefs, specialize in dessert-related products. Bakers may opt to become pastry chefs while the latter is already considered bakers. As for as earnings are concerned, pastry chefs take the salary stack more than bakers.
It is always & always encuraged to take formal training from culinary schools.
Below are some best Culinary/Pastry Schools :

Westminster Kingsway College, London, UK
The Culinary Institute of America
Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts, USA
Institute of Culinary Education, New York, USA

All the Best !
