Now more than ever, we are experiencing students being more willing to try new flavours, and they’re willing to pay for the privilege. Students are acknowledging quality over quantity and are looking for exciting beverages that they can show off on social media.

Overview

Who is this for?

Institutions that are experiencing a change in drinking culture within their university. TUCO delegates that would like to enhance their cocktail and mixology knowledge, those seeking to create new cocktail menus to entice students back into their bars, members who are interested in developing more extensive ‘mocktail’ recipes for their alcohol-free clientele.

Why should I take part?

With the number of students choosing to go tee-total or opting to stay home and drink rather than venture to their local student bar, it is more important than ever before that we understand the trends and tastes of mixology that our students are interested in. It’s definitely not all bad news, now more than ever we are experiencing students being more willing to try new flavours, and they’re willing to pay for the privilege. Students are acknowledging quality over quantity and are looking for exciting beverages that they can show off on social media. It’s about the experience, not just the drink itself. A challenge for mixologists – and one that we are excited to take on!

FAQs

  • I can’t see a particular course/training, can you run it?

    If you are interested in receiving training that is not already offered by TUCO Academy, pop us an email or give us a call and we will see if we can source it for you. By going through TUCO Academy you will be able to purchase the training at a subsidised rate and if you can offer the training to other members it will reduce the cost further.

  • Can I request a course or development day be held at my organisation?

    The TUCO Academy has worked hard to offer all training at a subsidised price, agreeing reduced corporate contract rates with hotels etc. - yet still understands the benefits of in-house training. To that end, working alongside the professional trainers, TUCO Academy can arrange for events to be held at your own institution, for no extra cost.
