WSET Level 2 Award: Thursday Evenings
Thursday evenings for six sessions starting 6th September over 6 weeks
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.

'Inspirational! When I took my diploma in wine back in '87 we didn't even have New World Wines on the syllabus, however Cherie our teacher was such a good teacher and I absolutely loved her classes! Thank you My Cherie Amour!' (Laura B, August 2016)
"I finished the WSET2 course with Cherie last night and just wanted to say that she is a true legend!! What a fab teacher. It was a shame I didn't get to say a proper thank you after the test. Please can you let her know that she was utterly fab and it’s been a really good few weeks? Thank you!!" (Katie Simmonds, April 2012)
