All WSET courses are examined, but dont worry our WSET-approved tutors have some of the highest pass rates in the country. Our Wine Schools are WSET Approved Programmed Providers, trained & approved by the WSET to deliver these specialist courses.
formerly known as Foundation, Level 1 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
formerly known as Intermediate, Level 2 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.
formerly known as Advanced, Level 3 is suitable for Wine enthusiasts who wish to learn about wines and spirits in a rigorous and structured manner, and gain an internationally recognised wine and spirit qualification. Also aimed at people employed in the drinks and hospitality industries in a supervisory capacity, needing core information to advise management and customers with authority and make informed selections of wines and spirits.
We are very proud of our West London Wine School (run by Jimmy Smith) which was nominated as Riedel WSET UK Educator of the Year 2012, only a tiny number of companies were selected from hundreds of WSET educators around the world for this prestigious award. The criteria set by the WSET judges - awarded to individuals or companies who - "have made a significant contribution to WSET courses and qualifications in the past year, and who have achieved superlative results in WSET programmes whilst demonstrating commitment and innovation in education."
We are proud to have been selected as a finalist for one of the wine industry's most prestigious accolades. Harpers Wine & Spirits Awards selected us (along with Oz Clarke – tough competition!) as being among the most engaging Wine Educators in the UK.
