The law requires alcohol sales on licensed premises to be made or authorised by a personal licence holder. Individuals applying for a personal licence must hold an accredited licensing qualification such as the Edexcel Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders (NCPLH). The qualification is accredited by both Ofqual and the Secretary of State at the Department of Culture, Media and Sport, and has been designed to meet the statutory requirements of the Licensing Act 2003.

The aim of this qualification is to provide candidates with essential knowledge of the legal framework surrounding the sale of alcohol in England and Wales. This includes key information on the responsibilities of personal licence holders, duties of the Designated Premises Supervisor, the role of licensing authorities and police powers regarding licensed premises. In order to obtain this qualification and be qualified to apply for a Personal Licence it is necessary to sit a written exam at one of our training locations.
