This course, brought to you in partnership with Plaskett College, consists of two parts: Part one is based on the Nutrition and Health course and Part two is an extension of this to train you to a Practitioner level.  You will:

  • Obtain the skills to understand the depth of disease in your patients to then find a route back from chronic disease and enable you to advise the best treatment plan
  • Develop an understanding of the role of the practitioner from the initial consultation, the taking of a case history, the interpretation and the subsequent advising of a treatment plan
  • Learn the ‘tools of the trade’ in using diets, supplements, herbs, phytonutrients in treatment, with flexibility and insight
  • Gain the confidence to practise as a Nutritional Consultant and advise your clients on the best route to achieving good health in a world where ill health is prevalent.


  • A series of short assignments
  • A series of checkpoint questions throughout the course which are self-assessed
  • 2 case studies
