Brewlab provide a number of Quality Mark Endorsed Programmes, and these include:

The Brewlab Certificate in Practical Brewing. A three- week residential programme which provides the knowledge and skills required to brew commercially plus knowledge and understanding of the commercial business frameworks associated with the setting up and operating a successful brewing business.

The Brewlab Diploma in British Brewing Technology, A nine-week residential course. A very comprehensive programme of learning which provides the knowledge and skills essential to become a professional brewer. This programme is particularly suited to those seeking to gain employment in the industry and also for those looking to set up or establish a commercial microbrewery. Again, this programme aims to equip participants with the skills and knowledge to understand the commercial business frameworks associated with setting up and operating a successful brewing business.


Both programmes incorporate aspects of brewing theory and processes, practical brewing and placements, field trips, flavour evaluation, quality analysis and business.

The courses are tutored by industry specialists with a wealth of expertise and experience in their fields.

For Brewlab and their students there are some very clear benefits of Quality Mark:

  • One Awards Quality Mark indicates to prospective and current students we have clear standards, and these are backed up by annual independent assessment.’
  • ‘Quality Mark gives a clear structure to our programmes, and this is underpinned by detailed written policies and documents. As result of external quality assurance, our standards have matured quite rapidly’.
  • ‘We have clear syllabi with well-structured document control procedures.

More than 250 students have now been certificated since Brewlab first achieved the Quality Mark.

Richard Hunt, Course Coordinator at Brewlab said “Having the Quality Mark ensures both our students and staff are clear of the objectives for each course and what standard is expected, this has greatly improved our feedback and continuous improvement systems and have always found the staff at One Awards to be supportive in providing help, advice and guidance to ensure we continuously improve the courses available."
