Bartending Classes – How to Increase Your Confidence Behind the Bar
Working behind a bar can sometimes feel like being on stage, so how can bartending classes help? You’re often the first person to greet customers at an establishment, so it’s important to feel comfortable with working efficiently under pressure while remaining professional and upbeat. This only comes with feeling more at ease with everything you’re doing, including having next level mixology skills. Here are just a few of the ways that joining a bartenders school can increase your confidence. Read More
Sequence of Service
Whether they’ve never experienced life behind a bar or feel they’ve never been given the support they need on the job, many of the people we meet on our mixology courses lack confidence. Our International Mixology Course looks at ways to achieve a smooth workflow behind the bar, operating each section effectively and implementing a good sequence of service. This includes expert tips and tricks for serving more than one customer at a time while ensuring the standard of your work remains high. This course at our bartending school takes place behind a real working bar much of time to help you feel more at ease with how everything works in reality.
We often hear horror stories about the training bartenders have (or haven’t!) had in their jobs, dropped in the deep end and expected to make perfect cocktails without any in-depth understanding of the techniques required. Our mixology classes cover the best methods to use, helping you to get to grips with some of the terms behind the methods you may have been practising if you’ve already had bar experience.
One to One Support
The best schools for bartending will limit their class sizes. It’s impossible to get personalised training which caters for your individual needs if you can’t get one to one time with your tutor. We only allow eight students on each of our courses for this reason. We want you to have the best experience possible, giving you the chance to raise your confidence in areas you feel a little shaky at. It also allows the mixology master you’re working with to assess how you’re doing, giving additional support if you need it.
Bar Consultancy Services for Businesses
Flexible bartender schools will also offer businesses the chance to hire them for bar consultancy services. If you’re launching a bar, feel your own skills are lacking, or you want to get the best out of your staff, this is a great solution. Many establishments even ask for all new starters to complete mixology classes before they begin. Some may also feel their employees aren’t coping well with the pressure of customer demands due to lack of training. There are plenty of ways we can help.
