WSET Level 2 Intermediate 2-Day Course at Darts Farm
This two day course is ideal for someone without a great deal of knowledge to gain a really good understanding of wine and wine tasting. The course provides a broad base of information on wines and spirits and is aimed at developing the skills of both retail and on-trade hospitality staff. It is also a good course for someone outside the trade who would like to develop their knowledge in a well-structured environment.
The National Qualifications Framework Level 2 Accredited Course provides a good background to the world’s wines and spirits. We have, with the approval of the Wine & Spirit Education Trust, reduced the course from 3 days to 2 days. This will mean a little more home study, but all the essential ground will still be covered. It also allows us to reduce significantly the normal WSET cost of £355.00 (VAT not applicable) to £287.50, plus VAT.
