You probably need a Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders qualification and we can help you achieve that.

Employers in the hospitality sector need staff who hold a Personal Licence. This is readily achieved and the first step is passing the one day, Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders course.

The Licensing Academy is a subsidiary of 21st Century Licencing which delivers this accredited course and exam.

Our highly successful courses run each month at our training site in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, and have a very high pass rate.

We believe that our success is due to courses being delivered in small groups by tutors with many years practical experience in and around the licensed trade and with training skills sharpened in mainstream education and private training environments.

The course costs £150 and runs at least one day a month from 9am to 4pm. At the end of the day students take a 40-question multiple choice exam that leads to an accredited qualification that is suitable for applying for a Personal Licence. (The pass mark is 70%)

Successful candidates will have access to their pass certificates in about 10 days and The Licensing Academy provides an additional service for those that would like us to make the application(s) on their behalf.  Details are available on request.

Our training site is within easy walking distance of rail services from both Greater Anglia and C2C services at Southend Central and Westcliff rail stations.  It is also well served by bus routes from Arriva and First Bus and has a variety of car parks nearby.
