The Wine & Spirit Education Trust has launched two new qualifications specifically created for the front of house employees in the hospitality sector.

 

The Level 1 Award in Wine Service is an introduction to the wine service profession and includes the development of practical skills. The Level 2 Award in Professional Wine Service is being piloted in five countries in the second half of 2012. It is aimed at those wishing to progress from the Level 1, and who have already received the Level 2 Intermediate Certificate in Wines & Spirits.

 

The new wine service qualifications follow the success story of the WSET's Level 1 Foundation Certificate in Wines that was launched in 2003.

 

Antony Moss MW, WSET's research and development director said: "We were aware of the requirement for a specific service element to be made available through research and feedback from our existing and potential customer base. This was further confirmed while working on my Master of Wine thesis which showed a very definite need for people to have easier access to training for front of house service."
