This qualification is for those involved in the sale of alcohol in both on-sales and off-sales environments. It has been developed to make sure that licence holders comply with current alcohol legislation in Scotland. These standards are necessary because of changes in the law which makes them part of the licensed trade’s responsibility – i.e. a regulatory requirement – to help keep Scotland safer and healthier.
The key areas are:
- Introduction to licensing
- Responsible operation of licensed premises
- The effect of alcohol consumption on customers and your business
Learners will need a qualification to support an application for a personal licence. This qualification is about showing learners understand how the licensing process works in Scotland, how people employed within the licensed trade can work responsibly and the consequences of this if they don’t.
Employers will look for the relevant licensing qualifications when they are appointing new staff for the licensed trade. They also expect their existing staff to have these qualifications. Understanding and applying skills in these key areas are important because they help learners to work effectively in their present jobs and also prepare for jobs within the sector which they may do in future. Developing knowledge of licensing legislation helps them to deal with today’s rapidly changing world and improve their career prospects.
