The Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) is launching a Continuing Professional Development' initiative aimed at existing Diploma holders who passed their examinations more than a decade ago, and who may now feel that there are some gaps in their knowledge. WSET School is offering places on single sessions for the Diploma cycle in 2003 for those who want to get back up to speed on particular countries, regions, grape varieties or topics. Places are offered on a first-come-first-served basis on all available sessions between January and May in the WSET School's four UK centres: London, Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow. Each of the sessions lasts half a day and the cost per session is 60, VAT exempt. Commenting on the inititative, David Hunter, principal of the WSET School, said: This is a cost- and time-effective solution for busy people who need to keep themselves up to date with contemporary issues in the parts of the world that are of interest to them. We can make the offer so competitive because these places are, in effect, spare places on existing full course programmes. So in just half a day with one of our subject specialists, attendees can have tasted and discussed their way back ?to really knowing what is going on in a particular part of the world.' For the full list of subjects on offer and to book a place, contact Sam Shipman on: 020 7246 1529; fax: 020 7329 8712; or email:
