Vegetarian & Vegan Nutrition Consultant

Overview

About the Level 3 Vegetarian and Vegan Nutrition Consultant Certificate

There is no denying that vegetarian and vegan diets are growing in popularity. In fact, where plant-based diets are concerned, a global shift in attitude seems to have taken place. The vegetarian menu, once sparsely populated with mushroom risottos and measly salads, is now a veritable breeding ground for flavour and creativity. This is due to the benefits veganism has been proven to have on a person’s health, the well-being of animals and the environment as a whole.

This course has been designed to provide learndirect students with a fundamental understanding of the benefits of a meat-free diet. The engaging home learning material will help our learners design balanced vegetarian and vegan meal plans, which provide all - if not more - of the nutrients provided by an omnivorous diet. The programme also aims to teach students how to advise pregnant women, body builders and younger people about vegetarian nutrition.

Who should study this course?

This course has been specifically designed for current or aspiring nutritionists who want to offer up to date advice about eating a plant-based diet. The course is also suitable for individuals who are considering adapting to this diet but are not yet sure about the best way to ensure they receive all of their nutrients.

At learndirect, we do not ask our students to have an prior experience or knowledge of nutrition before they enrol on this home study course. All we ask is that candidates have a way to access our e-learning materials, and that they have the motivation to study independently, outside of a traditional classroom setting.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this home learning qualification, learndirect graduates will be awarded with a vegetarian and vegan nutrition consultant certificate. This award will prove to prospective clients and employers that the student has studied and passed our Level 3 course.

After graduating, some students may choose to study towards a higher level nutrition course. This could lead to a job as a dietician. Other students may choose to put their knowledge to use straight away and put their knowledge to use in a related role. Jobs related to this course include, but are not limited to:

  • Nutritionist
  • Dietician
  • Health coach
