Wine and Spirit Education Trust Courses

Wine and Spirit Education Trust Courses

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 and also act as a Level 3 Internal Assessor.

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 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'm also an educator and internal assessor for the Level 3 Award in Wines

I can also bring the 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.

EXAM INFORMATION-Arrangements during coronavirus

WSET exams usually need to be taken in person which is difficult to plan during the on going, ever changing coronavirus situation but I will work with each candidate to agree on a suitable exam date in ABERDEEN as soon as restrictions allow. 

From 1st June 2020, it will be possible to take Level 1 and Level 2 exams in your own home by remote invigilation. If this option might be of interest, please call to discuss. Please note that there will be an additional £15.00 per person for this service.
