Excellence In Wine, Spirits And Sake Education Since 1977
- Online / Remote delivery of courses and classes: all WSET online courses, as well as IWEG remote delivered courses via the Zoom videoconferencing platform, remain unchanged and will proceed as scheduled.
- Remote Invigilation Examinations: remote invigilation examinations for WSET Levels 1 and 2 Awards will continue as planned.
- In-person examinations at the school: these assessments, which are sat in silence and do not require in-person instruction, will continue as planned:
- Capacity limits are reduced and candidates will be seated, physically distanced from each other. Facemasks will be worn at all times during all assessments.
- Facemasks will only be removed for the express purpose of tasting samples in those assessments that have a tasting component. Candidates must put facemasks back on after they have assessed samples and continue writing the examination.
- All examination samples for tasting examinations will be poured for candidates and candidates will not be able to touch the bottles.
- Candidates must bring their own sealed containers, as spittoons, to collect all expectorated samples, which must be disposed of safely at home, outside of IWEG’s premises. Detailed separate instructions on examination protocols will be emailed to candidates by IWEG staff prior to any scheduled assessment.
- Tasting Workshops: tasting workshops, which are part of our Fall Semester “blended” delivery model, currently scheduled for the remainder of the month of October and up to November 7th, will now be re-scheduled to opportune dates in the future.
- Please note that these workshops have not been cancelled. IWEG will re-schedule and will deliver these at a future time when public health guidelines and the pandemic situation provide us with greater comfort to do so safely.
- Priority will be given to re-scheduling first those workshops that have a tasting assessment included in the final examination, particularly those courses that have an immediate, upcoming tasting examination in the near future (e.g. WSET Level 3 Award in Wines in December 2020).
- IWEG Staff are here to help support, as best we can, students and instructors during these challenging and unprecedented times. Please note that all IWEG staff continue to work remotely and can be contacted by email.
- In keeping with the recommendations of public health and government authorities, there may be future changes to our operating procedures that we may be required to implement. Any new information will be shared with the IWEG community on a timely basis as decisions are made and communicated to us.
