Course Description

The ITEC level 3 diploma is meant for complementary therapists who would like to add nutrition into their remit. The main aim of the ITEC Level 3 Diploma in Diet and Nutrition for Complementary Therapists is to enable you to provide healthy eating advice for your clients, whom you already treat with another therapy, for the purpose of improving health and lifestyle. You will be required to complete 5 case studies in your own time. The case studies ensure that a variety of clients are consulted and that the outcomes of any dietary changes are documented. This is to gain experience of working with a variety of clients and conditions whilst you are still under supervision. Detailed rationales for the type of dietary changes and outcomes must be shown. The Tutor will provide supervision and monitor the quality of the written case study work throughout to ensure that the content of written documents meets ITEC criteria. There is a 30 minute exam at the end of the course which takes the form of 25 Multiple Choice Questions. Professional indemnity and public liability insurance can be obtained via ITEC. This is an ideal first nutrition course for complementary therapists who might want to go on to the full degree course at a later stage. The course tutor herself completed this course prior to joining the degree course as a means to finding out whether or not this was a subject she wanted to pursue as a career. The tutor has now completed the BSc (Hons) Nutritional Therapy and a nutrition Masters degree. You can contact us for a detailed course outline. You can also contact the ITEC tutor direct for more information. This course is delivered over 18 weeks on Tuesday evenings. Learn How to?..
