In-house trainingI didn’t realise how much I could learn in five weeks. My expectations were exceeded and this training was 100% good use of my time!

The course was really educating and interesting. I’m going to enjoy pairing (and drinking) wines much better now. I feel much more confident to recommend wines!
Jessica Caspar, WSET Level 1 Award in Wines Student, member of staff who attended in-house training

Thanks so much for last week and really glad to hear that you enjoyed it too.   I have had fantastic feedback from Rex Restaurants, he said that so many of the group have commented on how much they took from the course and how engaging your teaching was so thanks for giving them such a great experience.

We used Erica to train 8 employees at Wentworth Club for the Level 2 WSET and she was the main reason we all succeeded. Erica’s easy going manner made learning a pleasure and to keep 8 operators around a table interested is no mean feat. I would have no hesitation in recommending Erica to future Hospitality Establishments if they are thinking of training their own Sommeliers.

The feedback from everyone who has attended the in-house training has been so enthusiastic and people come back inspired, motivated and really importantly – confident to recommend wines and to pair wines with particular dishes on our menu. It’s been a huge success and we can see the difference not only in the enthusiasm and motivation of our staff – but also in our wine sales. Superb.

The extent of the knowledge and additional information received on this course will definitely improve my standards of service. Thank you for your time and patience Erica, you have been most helpful.
Vasileios Avlontitis, WSET Level 1 Award in Wines Student, member of staff who attended in-house training

Thank you for today; it was a really well presented course. I am definitely going to pass on some newly gained knowledge to the other staff especially the food matching part. It’s rare to find someone that is very welcoming and so very good at making people feel relaxed but also at the same time get across information so effortlessly.

I really enjoyed the course. I had a fair knowledge prior to the course but feel more confident. Erica is a fantastic deliverer who makes the course easy to understand and it is evident she is more than prepared to teach this course. I enjoyed today’s course immensely. Thank you very much!

Very good and professional trainer [Erica] who really made even the complicated part (pairing) seem easy and clear. Easy to listen and follow too. Really liked the different food and wine tasting – this helped to make it more clear.

Erica is a fantastic tutor, made the whole course very interesting and exciting. I really enjoyed the ‘group’ exercise we did on our last day of the course, and perhaps would benefit from doing similar exercises on previous days. All in all, WSET Level 2 AMAZING EXPERIENCE. Thank you.
