Description

If you’ve been thinking about becoming vegan but don’t know where to start, start here. The Vegan Nutritionist Diploma Course takes you from absolute novice to being capable of running your own nutritionist business. It covers both the theoretical and practical aspects of transitioning into and following a balanced vegan diet, as well as how to run a business helping others to do the same.

The Vegan Nutritionist Diploma Course begins by considering what veganism is, answering the questions, ‘What do vegans avoid?’ and ‘Where did veganism all begin?’, as you take a fascinating look into veganism around the world and throughout history. You’ll also learn about the health and environmental benefits of veganism, along with the moral benefits of this lifestyle choice.

As with any diet, balance is important in veganism. We outline the common mistakes made when following a vegan diet, what you can do to meet your protein, calcium, iron and other nutritional needs, and how to create effective meal plans.

Going from another type of diet into the vegan diet is known as ‘transitioning’. The Vegan Nutritionist Diploma Course discusses different transitioning methods, how to monitor health during the transition, and the difficulties that can be faced during this period.

The second half of the course explains how you can use the knowledge you’ve gained to run a nutritionist business.

You’ll learn how to create your own consultations for your nutritionist practice and why they are important. You’ll discover the varying nutritional needs of different client types, with a particular focus on pregnant women, infants and children, and athletes and bodybuilders. From there you’ll explore approaches to ongoing care and how you can use group therapy to reach a wider client base.

Running your own business, no matter which industry you work in, requires knowledge of the day-to-day tasks and processes you must consider in order to be successful. The Vegan Nutritionist Diploma Course takes you through the considerations you must make when it comes to premises, insurance, accounting, professional conduct, branding and marketing.

The course rounds out with a case study and the opportunity for you to create your own case study.

Who is this course for?

Anyone interested in transitioning to a balanced vegan diet or helping others to do so, will gain a lot from this course. You’ll learn both the theory and practice of working as a nutritionist and setting up your own business and truly discover the vegan diet – why it can be beneficial to health and how it can be balanced and nutritionally complete. Even if you are totally new to veganism, by the end the course you’ll feel confident in planning a nutritious vegan diet.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
