Custom courses

Custom courses are our most tailored option for businesses looking for quality drinks training and have multiple team members to train (10 people or more).

There are many different ways you can customise our WSET qualifications, from personalising the tasting samples to a specific brand  or portfolio, to adding supplementary content to the WSET material.

Read on to discover your options today, or get in touch to speak to a member of our team.

What is a custom course?

A custom course is an accredited WSET qualification in wines, spirits, sake or beer that has been personalised to a specific business or brand.

It's our most tailored option for companies who would like to have private classes specifically for their employees, without the distraction of other students.

What can you customise?

  • Location: You can study in-person or online (or a combination of the two), at WSET School London or we can discuss another venue of your choice.
  • Time and format: Pick a date and time that works for you and your team. This could be on one day or over multiple days, during the week, evenings or on a Saturday - it's up to you! (Please note that we need at least four weeks’ notice to organise a course.)
  • Educators and speakers: Want to bring in a specialist speaker? We can work with you to find in the perfect host for your course.
  • Samples: We have access to an incredible range of samples at WSET School London and can work with you to select the best drinks for your training goals. Want to use your own wines, spirits, sake or beer? That's not a problem! The samples do have to meet the qualification requirements, but we can help you with that.
  • Additional content: The course must cover all the WSET material, but you can include any additional talks, tastings and activities to supplement students' learning.
  • Almost anything! Tell us about your objectives and we'll explore the options with you.

Other tastings and training sessions

We can arrange bespoke training on any topic of your choice.

These sessions are not WSET qualifications so there would be no exam at the end of the day, offering you the chance to train your staff in a more informal setting.
