In March of 2022, the Xcel Institute launched a brand new set of five courses, all tailored for high-end hospitality success! With hospitality being one of the top five worldwide industries, now has never been a better time to start a new career path—or endeavour further if you’re already well into hospitality!
Part of this fantastic opportunity includes a Level 2 in Bartending Skills course. So, if you can see yourself pulling pints, mixing up cocktails, and serving drinks with a flourish - then read on to find out more.
Bartending—along with Front of House serving—is one of the most sought-out jobs at the moment by people aged 18-25. With hours that can be managed around your lifestyle and the opportunity to get right into the midst of the action, it’s easy to see why this is a much-wanted job right now!
However, the Xcel Institute is offering you that higher boost: to obtain a Level 2 certification. Anyone can try out for bartending but with certification, you could find yourself already armed with the skills, knowledge and experience you need - and find yourself well on your way to promotions.
So, if you’re someone who thinks they can easily navigate around a bar, fancy getting involved with mixing up cocktails or maybe even creating your own, and can serve a drink with a smile, then definitely look into this course. It’s ideal for sociable people who can always stay focused and put the customer first. So if this sounds like you, then this could be a great way to find job security and have fun!
