Training and Sponsorship Opportunities

Everyone joining our teams can expect to be valued, nurtured and developed.

We offer our shining stars the opportunity to shine brighter with a full company sponsorship.

We offer Intermediate and Professional level sponsorship with the cost being incurred by us and all we ask is for your loyalty to the team.

Wine and Spirit Education Trust

At The Lido, Reading we don’t have your typical wine menu, so we know the importance of having staff members take a vested interest in our wines, where they come from and what they taste like.

We have teamed up with the globally recognized Wine Association to provide a training program that can elevate you to a Level 3 Award in wines. For serious wine enthusiasts.

We would like one or two of our team to really know about our wines. From liaising with our suppliers to attending all our training sessions that have a wine focus.

When this is recognized we would like to offer a Full Sponsorship program of WSET Level 2 and onto Level 3.

Specialty Coffee Association

At The Lido, Reading we praise ourselves on GREAT coffee making skills.

We know the importance in the art of coffee making, whether it is dialing in the grinder or creating the perfect milk – they all contribute to a blissful coffee.

We want you to be the best you can so we offer Full Sponsorship programs of all levels of SCA training up to Professional Barista Level.
