"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 - Monday 19th February
Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits - Mondays 12th, 19th and 26th March 2018
Level 3 Award in Wine - over six Tuesdays starting 6th February 2018 with revision and examination on 13th March.
