Pre Entry Awareness Training

BII - Raising Standards in Licensed Retail

BII’S Pre-Entry Awareness Training (PEAT) is an e-learning package that identifies the main issues which need to be considered and investigated before signing a pub tenancy or lease agreement. It is accredited by BIIAB, the Ofqual regulated awarding body which is part of BII, the professional body for the licensed retail industry.

If you are looking to take on a pub lease or tenancy in England or Wales then taking PEAT will give you the necessary knowledge to evaluate the agreement which you are seeking to enter.

Fuller's will insist in the majority of cases that applicants have taken the PEAT online learning course prior to a final interview for a pub.

BII Pre-entry Awareness Training

PEAT is designed to ensure that you fully understand the implications of the pub tenancy or lease which you are considering signing. It will give you an awareness of the tied pub model as well as provide information on business plans, the different types of agreements available, rental calculations, the legal consequences of breach of agreement and much more.

The requirement for PEAT training and business advice may be waived at our discretion where we believe that you are suitably qualified through experience and achievement to rely on your own judgment. If a waiver is applied, this will be noted on the interview check list before both parties sign it. Applicants can request a waiver if :

  • They are multiple retailers with a number of other pub or bar premises
  • They can demonstrate at least three years recent experience of running a successful tenanted or leased business
  • They can demonstrate at least three years' relevant business management experience.
  • Applicants have an existing successful lease or tenancy with the company

The programme costs £30 + VAT and will take on average 2 hours to complete.
