Training Academy

shape

Our reputable Training Academy runs courses that are designed to not just teach our students how to do things but to develop their confidence and independence. Whether the students will be working for us or working elsewhere our priority is to bring the best out of the student and give them the best possible start.

Front of House Training

All our front of house staff take part in our FOH Event Hospitality training course before working for us. This course is designed around all aspects of an event with an emphasis not only on the skills required but also on installing confidence in the individuals own ability.  If you are interested in taking this course and/or working for us please visit the Working for Us section and follow the instructions. No previous experience is necessary.

Bartender Courses

Our Bartender Training Courses, in association with our bar on Whiteladies Road, Bar 135, are designed to not only teach our students how to make drinks but also to develop their understanding of the craft right down to the first step of distillation, build their confidence to embolden their originality and give them some real experience of bar work to give them the best possible start to their bartending career.

 

Below are a selection of our bartender courses designed to teach all aspects of bartending and to develop a deep understanding of how drinks are made, from distillation through to mixing and service.  These courses are open to the public and run regularly. To those of you who already work for us, we offer a discounted price on these courses - please contact us directly for more information. To find out more, please contact enquiries@bar135.co.uk

If you do not fancy attending one of these courses, but would enjoy attending as an 'official taster' we offer an option for you to come and sample the students' creations - you can even offer them tips and advice.
