Personal Licences (APLH - Course 3)
Under the Licensing Act 2003 and supporting regulations, all retail sales of alcohol in England and Wales must be made by, or under the authority of, a Personal Licence Holder. The Licensing Act 2003 separates the licensing of persons from the licensing of premises. A Personal Licence is a licence given to an individual granting them the authority to sell alcohol to the public. It looks and functions like a driving licence. A Personal Licence is valid for ten years and can be used throughout England and Wales. An individual can only hold one Personal Licence.This course defines a Personal Licence and outlines how to apply for it. It covers the types of objections that can be made to the granting of a licence and indicates the type of criminal offences that a licence holder should report to the Licensing Authority upon being convicted. It also defines the duties of a Personal Licence Holder if their licence is renewed, surrendered or revoked, if their contact details change or if they are convicted of drink driving.

Goals To define how to apply for a Personal Licence and identify a license holder's duties


Premises Licences and Temporary Events (APLH - Course 4)
The Licensing Act 2003 separates the licensing of premises from the licensing of persons. This is a move away from the old system which confused the suitability of the premises with the eligibility of the person applying for a licence. A Premises Licence is required for the sale of alcohol or provision of 'licensable activities' from a particular venue, whether it's a one off disco in the local town hall or a five star hotel. This course explains how to obtain a Premises Licence and how to issue a Temporary Event Notice (TEN) for a single event. The application process is described in detail, including how to create an operating schedule to promote the licensing objectives. You will learn about hearings and appeals in respect of a Premises Licence application as well as reviews and variations to existing licences. Possibilities and exceptions for a range of locations such as buildings, open spaces and moving vehicles are discussed in detail along with the circumstances under which you may need a provisional statement. When and how to issue a Temporary Event Notice (TEN) is also described in detail including usage limits, such as restrictions on the number of people attending events or the frequency of events.

Goals To equip learners with the information, advice and guidance to obtain a Premises Licence or use Temporary Event Notices.


Protection of Children from Harm (APLH - Course 5)
Although the purpose of licensing legislation is not to stop children entering licensed premises, there are legal rules regarding children which every Personal Licence Holder must know. The objective of the legislation is to ensure that licensed premises offer a safe environment for children in terms of their physical, moral and psychological welfare. Children should be unable to access alcohol or drugs, and should be subject to an appropriate level of care and supervision at all times. This course explains the law, the exceptions to it and the penalties for breaching the law. It is essential that everything possible is done to avoid committing an offence under the legislation, and in this course you will learn about the concept of due diligence defence, when it may be used, and the types and features of acceptable proof of age documents.
