Profession standards
We work with criteria and standards set by the profession for the profession; National Occupational Standards, Core Elements, Guidance on Clinical Hours etc. This ensures that when you study one of our courses you can be confident that it meets the requirements of the profession for the set level of the qualification. 

Education level
Over the years we have worked with many 
accreditation associations and awarding bodies. All of our courses have set learning outcomes and assessment criteria and these have been benchmarked against national frameworks. To ensure consistency/accuracy mapping work has been assessed by third party qualification specialists. This ensures that the level assigned to a course accurately maps against that education level.

Federation of Nutritional Therapy Practitioners

As the largest and fastest growing professional body for practitioners of Nutritional Therapy in Europe, FNTP Accredited Courses provide the reassurance of recognition for insurance and practice in almost all European countries.

Worldwide FNTP provide an international award mapping service for use by education providers and regulatory authorities. Licensing authorities and regulators on five continents have mapped FNTP Accredited Courses as a benchmark for practice.

Because our Nutritional Therapist Course is FNTP Accredited when you graduate with this qualification the award is considered, by main international bodies, to be appropriate for practice. In order to be an FNTP member you must have insurance where insurance is available. However if insurance to be a Nutritional Therapist is not available in your country then when you apply for FNTP membership you can opt to become an ‘uninsured member’ by selecting ‘Not available’ in the relevant field.

We would recommend you join the FNTP as Student Members and then upgrade to Full Members when you have graduated from our Nutritional Therapist Course passing the FNTP accredited award. If you have any further questions about FNTP membership please contact them directly by clicking on their logo below.

The Register is a published list of nutritionists who work within an established code of ethics. Since the School is a recognised course provider in nutritional education our Nutrition Therapist Diploma, given on completion of our Nutrition Therapist Course, leads to immediate registration in the UK. Potential patients seeking a nutritionist practitioner trained to a high standard can access this Register to find someone in their area.

Please note that completion of our International programme does not always confer an automatic license to practice. Whilst we have a good recognition in the UK it is wise to review the official recognition policies of your own country before setting up in practice.

The course certification is widely accepted, recommended and used by many schools, colleges and individuals as part of their integrated training programmes. If you have further education in mind we recommend that you check with your college to make sure our course is recognised for the necessary high standards. We are happy to help in this respect.

There are 4 - 6 assignments at the end of each unit that you send to your tutor via the online system, e-mail or post. These are assessed and returned to you.

To complete the course you have to attain a passing grade in each of the assignments. You will then be awarded The School of Health's Nutritional Therapist Diploma Certificate.

Please note: you will only be assigned a tutor, be able to send work for assessment and receive a certificate on completion of the course if you purchase it with tutor marking. If you purchase the course without tutor marking, it is possible to upgrade it to include the services of a tutor later.

By purchasing a distance-learning or online course from The School of Health you are assured of receiving a high quality product, service and care.
