You’re ready to take on a pub

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.

Training Courses

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 Just Add Talent operators. You’ll learn everything you need to know to launch and run a pub business. These initial programmes include one year's subscription to the BII (British Institute of Innkeeping) and access to our e-learning platform for one year.


Commit to your career and your pub’s future. Use any downtime to learn something new or upskill your staff. We know what you’re thinking. “What downtime?!” We get it. But it’s a great way to build your business: 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 to see how you, as a team, can develop your service and offering. Chat with our team for guidance around taking the next steps.

Raising the bar workshops

We know that running a great pub takes a broad range of skills. We offer training in key areas of running a pub to help you and your team, improve. Register for our Passion for Quality workshop, designed to help you sharpen your bar and cellar skills. Or develop your social media skills through specialist training. Our workshops are designed with the ultimate goal of helping you attract more customers through the doors and improve their experience while they’re in your pub.

Grow your food offer

We all know food is a big business in our industry. We have a comprehensive food support offer for leased and tenanted operators. Our food programme provides training, deals, tools, and advice to help you make the most of the opportunity and provide the best experience for your customers.
