WSET Level 1 Award in Wines

WSET Level 1 Award in Wines

The Level 1 Award in Wines is an entry level qualification providing a straightforward introduction to wine. A great course for those wanting to taste & recognise the main grape varieties, & explore food and wine matching. It is also ideal for boosting the confidence of new or inexperienced front line staff in the hospitality and retail sectors

WSET Level 2 Award in Wines

WSET Level 2 Award in Wines

The NEW Level 2 Award in Wines (from 1 Aug 2019) is ideal for those who have a serious interest in wine, and wish to broaden their knowledge in a structured way. It is also intended as vocational training 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. PS - you do not need to take Level 1 before enrolling on this Level 2 course - Level 2 is an ideal introductory wine course.

The Level 3 Award in Wines is suitable for Wine enthusiasts who wish to learn about wines in a rigorous and structured manner, and gain an internationally recognised wine qualification.

I don't alway write reviews but I really feel that Ian deserves it. I took the wset level 2 wine course with east London wine school and had an excellent time. Ian was very knowledgeable and more importantly, he's an excellent instructor. Polite, passionate and all in all a great teacher. Would recommend to anyone!! Visited September 2013
