hotel staff celebrate achieving licensing qualifications
at a Burnham-On-Sea hotel are celebrating after achieving licensing
Royal Clarence Hotel on Burnham's seafront has seen another two
of its supervisors pass a prestigious licensing exam - the (BIIAB
Level 2) Award for Personal Licence Holders (APLH).
the Licensing Act 2003 any sale of alcohol must be made or authorised
by a personal licence holder who must hold an accredited qualification
such as the APLH.
Chatwin, owner of The Royal Clarence Hotel, said: "The law
requires that just one person within each premises is required
to study and pass an examination to be awarded their APLH and
thereafter apply for a Personal Licence."
the interests of public safety, to reduce the impact of anti-social
behaviour, and to provide staff with a better understanding of
their legal duties when serving alcohol, we took the decision
to pay for all of our supervisors to study for the APLH examination."
are extremely proud to announce that we now have six staff working
within the hotel who have successfully completed the course and
have gained the (BIIAB Level 2) Award for Personal Licence Holders
believe that we are the only premises throughout the South West
to have such a large proportion of their staff having taken the
course which shows our continued efforts to ensure our customers
can relax in the knowledge that staff are trained to look out
for potential issues and to ensure illegal under-age purchases
are not taking place."
