City & Guilds Level 2 Award in Barista Skills

Course Content

With the International Award in Barista Skills you'll gain the knowledge and skills you need to prepare and serve hot and cold drinks in any environment. The unit is designed to be taken as a stand-alone qualification to increase specialist skills and knowledge, but it can also be taken alongside other qualifications.

This qualification provides learners with specialist skills and knowledge in one of the major growth areas of the hospitality industry – the beverage sector. The unit is aimed at all first line operatives where coffee is served – this includes coffee bars, coffee houses, cafes, hotels and restaurants.

Candidates will be introduced to the full range of products used in making beverages. They will
learn where the products come from, and some of the processes they go through, from growing to the final drink. They will also learn the importance of taking care of the products in order to provide an excellent final result.

You don't need any experience and you may already be working in the hospitality industry. We recommend that you have access to an espresso machine and grinder in order to practice making drinks in your own time.
