"Catering operations succeed or fail on their staff training and motivation"  
- the late (and sadly missed) food critic AA Gill writing in the Sunday Times - and we couldn't agree more (even if he didn't touch alcohol)!

We are an Approved Progamme Provider for the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) which is the only wine & spirit education organisation approved by the UK government as a national awarding body of vocational qualifications. It operates in over 70 countries to provide vocational awards for those in, or wishing to join the drinks industry or just want to have an recognised professional qualification.

"What's missing in a lot of young chefs is wine knowledge." says Michel Roux Jr "They should engage with it more, have more respect."

Our next WSET courses are:
Level 1 Award in Wine - next course will be held on Monday 4th March 2019
Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits - next course will be held over three Tuesdays starting 19th February 2019 with final day and examination on 5th March 2019.
Level 3 Award in Wine - six Mondays starting 21st January 2019 with final revision and examination day on 25th February 2019.
