Foodie careers

With the culinary arts and hospitality industry at the heart of most social gatherings and events, it’s no wonder that these jobs are always in such high demand. Whether you are a budding chef, food experimentalist, hospitality and organisation enthusiast or nutrition fanatic

Now, when we think of careers in the food industry our minds nearly always go to ‘chef’ or ‘haute cuisine’. But what about taking it back to basics? What lies at the heart of good food, good nutrition and organisation? How can we turn a passion for good food into a successful business endeavour?

This course has been designed specifically for those seeking a career in nutrition coaching – whether you want to start your own business from the ground up or join an existing team of health professionals, this course is the perfect first step on your journey. Put simply, nutrition online courses are an excellent choice for any budding nutrition expert. 

This course will equip you with extensive knowledge about healthy eating, writing diet plans and customising diets and eating for your clients, as well as learning about the way certain foods influence energy levels, fats and muscles. Our course is very business focused and comes with small business training to help you pursue your own nutrition business.

The perfect choice for anyone who is passionate about fitness, sport health and proper nutrition. You will gain valuable skills and knowledge to apply dietary interventions to help you or your clients achieve maximum performance. Sportspeople often have special dietary needs to help them fulfil their athletic potential, and this course will teach you how to develop your understanding of the way nutrition relates to sporting performance, help both sportspeople and yourself improve and manage performance and diet, as well as expand your career options to work in the fitness, health, or sports industries.

This course starts by laying the foundations of how we absorb food, an overview of the different components of food and the basics of nutrient disorders. The second module will help you understand sports nutrition, nutrition for fitness, sports supplements, and the relationships between performance, health, and food.

Every individual body is different – physical characteristics (including genetics) will vary from one individual to another, similarly, the nutritional components used in some sports will differ from those used in others. This course will equip you to recognise and understand the various needs of each individual client, and give you extensive knowledge in sports nutrition in both a holistic and scientific way.

Whether you are looking to understand and adopt healthier choices for your own child or family, implement a new lifestyle balance for your family, or embark on a new rewarding career, this course is an excellent choice.

Many of us are aware of the increasing concern over the eating habits of our young, and for those working with children and their parents, understanding nutritional needs and what drives these needs is very useful. Many parents can find nutrition confusing and overwhelming, wanting to do what is best for their child but perhaps unsure where to look. With a career in children’s nutrition, YOU can be the one to help them find the right information.

This course will provide you with the knowledge and competencies required to manage the nutritional requirements and challenges during pregnancy, lactation, infancy, and childhood until adolescence. We also take a holistic approach, focusing not just on what to feed children, but also eating patterns and nutritional requirements from pre-pregnancy through to teens.

Good nutrition starts with guidance and understanding, and on this course, armed with your enthusiasm and willingness to help others, you will gain insight into how to refine your skills to offer the best service you can to your clients.

You will further explore all areas of health and wellbeing, such as fitness, nutrition, stress management, preventative health and First Aid with one-on-one guidance from your tutor.

Life coaching not only involves planning and engaging in processes to bring about change, it also involves motivating the client to accept the need for inner change in order to bring about outer change.

In this course, you will access 18 key units designed to give you the skills you need to either run your own business or work for a company in the space of life coaching.
