The International Wine Education Centre (IWEC) was established in 2011 as the first Approved Programme Provider for the internationally-recognised Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) in Africa. WSET is the largest global provider of wines & spirits qualifications and their wine and spirit courses are the accepted industry-standard in more than 60 countries with over 56,000 people sitting a WSET exam in the last twelve months alone.
Led by WSET International Educator of the Year, Cathy Marston AIWS, the IWEC offers a full range of WSET courses from entry level to Level 3, both online and as classroom courses. The IWEC also liaises with the London Wine & Spirit School to help facilitate WSET’s flagship qualification, Level 4 Diploma, now into its second successful year.
The IWEC regularly teaches courses throughout South Africa, specialising in Western Cape and Gauteng, and can run bespoke courses anywhere in the country for individual companies or groups of interested wine-lovers. The IWEC has also run courses in Mauritius and Namibia and is happy to consider future courses throughout Africa to meet demands.
