Clinical Nutrition

This clinical nutrition course focuses on the human body and its relationship with food. 

Engaging and educational, the course material will have you thinking about the ways food can affect physical health and the overall sense of wellbeing. Students will analyse links between nutrition and disease and examine the workings of the metabolism.

Learn how to think like a clinical nutritionist and the responsibilities for advising and supporting individuals as they adjust their diets to suit their dietary needs.

This qualification is not only useful to those who already work in nutrition and wish to progress, but also to those who want to understand a bit more about health and nutrition for their own benefit.


How does the course work? 

Once enrolled, students will be given access to our online course materials where they will find educational and interactive learning resources. Everything you need to complete the course will be included in these easy to access materials. Additionally, you will be able to communicate with our tutors via phone, email or through our online platform. Further advice and guidance is also provided through a hub of likeminded learners that you can reach out to through our virtual learning platform.  

Distance learning comes with a great deal of flexibility, but self-motivation and discipline are essential to successfully complete your studies.

At the end of this course successful learners will be given the option to receive a Certificate of Achievement from the Quality Licence Scheme and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the components the learner has completed as part of the course).

Level 4 Clinical Nutrition Certificate of Achievement

The course has been endorsed under the Quality Licence Scheme. This means that learndirect has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 4 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed learndirect to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. The Quality Licence Scheme endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

The Quality Licence Scheme is part of the Skills and Education Group, a charitable organisation that unites education and skills-orientated organisations that share similar values and objectives. With more than 100 years of collective experience, the Skills and Education Group’s strategic partnerships create opportunities to inform, influence and represent the wider education and skills sector.

The Skills and Education Group also includes two nationally recognised awarding organisations; Skills and Education Group Awards and Skills and Education Group Access. Through our awarding organisations we have developed a reputation for providing high-quality qualifications and assessments for the education and skills sector. We are committed to helping employers, organisations and learners cultivate the relevant skills for learning, skills for employment, and skills for life.

Our knowledge and experience of working within the awarding sector enables us to work with training providers, through the Quality Licence Scheme, to help them develop high-quality courses and/or training programmes for the non-regulated market.
