The Wine and Spirit Education Trust was founded in 1969 to provide good quality wine education. Their qualifications are now offered more than 70 countries around the world and enjoyed by both professionals and enthusiastic amateurs.
It was working through their courses which opened my eyes to the world of wine.
As an Approved Programme Provider (APP), nominated Educator and Associate of the Institute of Wines and Spirits (AIWS), I will take care of the administration, tutoring of the course, organisation and invigialtion of exams.
As an APP, I currently offer the WSET Level 1 Award in Wines and WSET Level 2 Award in Wines as taught courses and the following online self study courses: WSET Level 1 Award in Wines Online, WSET Level 1 Award in Spirits Online, WSET Level 2 Award in Wines Online and WSET Level 2 Award in Spirits Online
I am happy to discuss the option of Zoom delivery for Level 1 Award in Wines for in-house training.
I'm also an educator and internal assessor for the Level 3 Award in Wines
I can also bring the classroom courses in-house to the trade in Aberdeen and across Scotland and work with in a time frame that suits your business needs. Clients have included the Gleneagles Hotel, the Sheraton Grand Hotel and Spa Edinburgh and Gordon and MacPhail, Elgin.
