Training and Growth for experienced publicans

A great pub is a sustainable and thriving business. That’s why we’ve got training programmes and opportunities to help you meet your potential and help your pub business grow over the long term.

Innside Knowledge

We have two training courses to get you fired up and ready for running a pub. Innside Knowledge is our mentor-led virtual induction course for Leased & Tenanted agreement licensees. And Just Add Knowledge is our award-winning programme for our Management Agreement (Just Add Talent) operators. These initial programmes include one year's subscription to the BII (British Institute of Inn Keeping) and access to our e-learning platform for one year.


You can access our online training platform any time to learn about everything from Food Safety and Allergens to Conflict Management and Interview Skills. There are over 50 modules to choose from. So maybe it’s worth carving out some time with your team to see how everyone can develop your service and offering.

Raising the bar workshops

Our workshops are designed to help take your pub business to the next level. Enrol in our Passion for Quality workshop, designed to help you hone bar and cellar skills. Or develop your social media talent through specialist training. These workshops will help you attract more customers through the doors and improve their experience while they’re in your pub.

Grow your food offer
