"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 date TBA.
Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits - three Mondays starting 29th October, final day and exam 12th November.
Level 3 Award in Wine - six Mondays starting 3rd September with final revision and examination day on 8th October.
