Wine and Spirit Education Trust courses provide globally recognised qualifications for Wine Industry professionals and enthusiastic amateurs.

Cambridgeshire Wine School is a WSET Approved Programme Provider (APP). Level 2 is a 3-day course (10am-5pm) held in Cambridge on selected Sundays through the year.

Recent review: "Extremely informative and some great wines to taste. Mark is a brilliant tutor, explaining everything in an easy to understand way."

Who should consider studying WSET Level 2?
The WSET Level 2 Award in Wines & Spirits was designed as vocational training in product knowledge for those employed in the drinks industry, but is increasingly popular amongst people who want to study out of personal interest alone. If you have a serious interest in wine and wish to broaden your knowledge in a structured way this course offers you an internationally recognised qualification. WSET Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits has full accreditation from OfQual as a Level 2 Vocational Qualification.

No previous experience of Wine Tasting is necessary to register on this course.
