WSET Level 2 Award: Wednesday Evenings
Wednesday evenings for six sessions starting 25th April
This exciting and structured course is the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Level 2 Award and is intended as vocational training in product knowledge for those employed in the drinks industry who have little previous knowledge of the broad range of alcoholic beverages available. The qualification is suitable wherever a good level of product knowledge is required to underpin job skills and competencies. The course is also appropriate for those not employed in the drinks industry but who have a serious interest in wine, and wish to broaden their knowledge in a structured way. This qualification has full accreditation from the UK Government’s Qualifications & Curriculum Authority (NQCF) as a Level 2 Vocational Qualification.

REVIEW: "Passed with Distinction all thanks to Shane!" 'Every week I looked forward to traveling to my WSET course, always feeling welcome and not judged for my level of knowledge on wine. This has been a springboard into the world of wine for me and I now manage a wine shop in Putney!! Amazing, couldn't give these guys any more praise' (Ben W, via TripAdvisor)
