Portsmouth City Council offers Preventing Underage Sales (PUAS) facilitated training which includes a full toolkit for staff training on your premises, as well as half a day of certificated training, for £50.

Portsmouth City Council has developed the PUAS toolkit in response to industry-wide training requirements to demonstrate commitment to responsible alcohol retailing.

The training provides additional protection to licensed premises not just with regard to underage sales, but also local needs, schemes, fake IDs and maintaining your stores due diligence records.

Preventing Underage Sales training – overview

Our session is suitable for all Off/On Licence retailers who wish to improve the quality of staff training, and particularly so for new starters, night workers, shift managers or staff responsible for training in your store.

We have worked with the police and local traders to design a low cost pack that reflects local issues. Staff attending the training will be tested at the end of each session and receive a Portsmouth City Council certificate to display in store as well as a full copy of Preventing Underage Sales toolkit – the retailer’s guide to help with the day to day running of the store.
