The IQ Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders is a knowledge-based qualification aimed at those who work or intend to work in a sector that involves the retail sale of alcohol. In accordance with the Licensing Act 2003, it is necessary to hold a personal licence holder qualification before applying for a personal licence to sell alcohol at licensed premises. It provides formal recognition of the learners’ knowledge and as it has no competence component, it is suitable for those who are not in work, for example individuals studying subjects in which the issue of alcohol sale is important. As the qualification is generic, it is relevant to any alcohol licensed premises including but not limited to pubs, clubs, supermarkets, restaurants, hotels, off-licences, casinos, entertainment venues and leisure facilities.

By completing the single mandatory unit, all learners will cover the validity, legal duties, application process and licensing objectives relating to personal licences in England and Wales; the effects of alcohol, the law, the role of the Designate Premises Supervisor (DPS), Temporary Event Notices, the protection of children, the powers of the police and other authorities, prohibitions and exemptions. Objectives of the qualification include preparing learners to progress to a qualification in the same subject area but at a higher level or requiring more specific knowledge, skills and understanding, meeting relevant programmes of learning, preparing learners for employment and supporting a role in the workplace.
