I decided to do the nutrition course as I am considering a career change. I found the course great. The classes are very interactive and Michelle, the teacher, is very encouraging. Any queries I had about the course or the material were always responded to through email or phone calls in a swiftly manner. I would highly recommend this course to everyone. I feel like I have learned a lot and I am more mindful of the food I eat after completing this course. Whether it's for personal or professional reasons , I feel everyone would benefit from doing this course.
I really enjoyed the personal nutrition course. I applied to take the course as I have an interest in nutrition and wanted to expand my knowledge. I have now signed up for the advanced diploma as I've enjoyed and learnt so much that I'm thinking about a total career change to start in the field of nutrition. Being a 'mature' student I have been away from education for nearly 15 years so I believe this will give me a good basis and background in which to progress further - should I obtain the qualifications that is! I have been doing well in the assignments, although frustrating myself by making silly errors like not reading the questions properly, but I am consistent with 8's and 9's out of 10, so with revision I hope to do well in the final exam. The way the course is conducted is really good as you have the interaction with live sessions (which makes you feel like being in a classroom as you are sharing with other students and questions get asked that you may not have thought of but are really glad someone else did) Being able to listen to the recordings the following day is great especially if it was a struggle to take on board all the information of the lesson e.g. lesson 5, but after pausing the webinar and taking time to go through pdf's I understood it. I think it's great the amount of information given in each lesson and although it is intense at times on subjects I have restricted knowledge on, I can re process the information from pdf's and webinar upload after to get a better understanding.
I’ve just completed the Diploma in Nutrition which I would highly recommended. I did the course for personal reasons and learnt so much, all of which will help me and my family stay healthy in the future. The course was well structured, researched and communicated and Michelle is fantastic! The additional support from the Shaw Academy has been very impressive.
