What you will learn on this course

Our diet and nutrition can play a key part in staying healthy, with so many options for food and drink it can be a hard task maintaining a balance. More vulnerable people in the community and those in care require help to achieve this, so the Skills For Care team added this to the Care Certificate.

You will learn:

  1. Malnutrition, risks of bad diets and potential health problems
  2. Person-centred care and supporting people
  3. Calories, different types of energy and how the body uses them
  4. Bodyweight and how nutrition affects it
  5. Nutrition and hydration for the more vulnerable people

All of our training courses are diligently planned in order to adhere to the relevant teaching regulations. With regular, thorough checks on our course material, we make sure that we’re only teaching the essentials.

Bespoke training course

We customise every course so that it applies specifically to our trainees. We can’t stand boring and repetitive training sessions, so by making sure each new session is different from the last we keep them fresh and engaging.
