Welcome to the Wine & Spirit Education Trust



Ian and Jancis

The Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) was founded in 1969 to provide high quality education and training in wines and spirits.  Since then, WSET has grown into the foremost international body in the field of wines and spirits education, with a suite of sought-after qualifications.

New Tasting Room In addition to courses and qualifications for those in the 'trade', we have an increasing number of 'consumers', or enthusiasts, who attend courses. They may attend a course because of a wish to gain a formal qualification or simply a desire to enhance their knowledge of the ever-increasing variety of wines and spirits being produced in the world today.

We work through a network of Approved Programme Providers around the world.  These external Providers are rigorously checked to ensure that they deliver the high standard of teaching required to enable students to pass their WSET qualification.

Whatever your level of interest, you will find it at the Wine & Spirit Education Trust, and we look forward to welcoming you onto one of our programs.

Many WSET qualifications are part of the UK qualifications framework, and the education courses leading to WSET qualifications are an invaluable source of information for students to enhance their knowledge of wines and spirits. WSET qualifications are not a guarantee of employment or career progression, nor do they form part of any regulated qualifications framework outside UK.
