WSET Level 2 Award in Spirits (LEEDS): 3-Day Course
This exciting and structured course is the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Level 2 Award in Spirits. It is intended as vocational training in product knowledge for those employed in the drinks industry who have little previous knowledge of the broad range of alcoholic beverages available. The course is also increasingly popular amongst those not employed in the drinks industry but who have a serious interest in spirits, cocktails and drinks in general, and wish to broaden their knowledge in a structured way by gaining this internationally recognised qualification. WSET Level 2 Award in Spirits has full accreditation from OfQual as part of the UK Government’s Qualifications & Credits Framework as a Level 2 Vocational Qualification.
