EVENING SESSIONS - WHO ARE THEY DESIGNED FOR?

  • We run evening sessions for those who can not sacrifice a weekend or are busy working in the hospitality trade at weekends or those who work during the week.
  • The sessions run for approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes, starting at 7pm and finishing at approximately 9:30pm
  • There are 9 sessions (every week) and an exam session, spread out over 2 months. This enables you to learn this challenging syllabus over a longer time period. The final exam day is 7pm - 10pm.
