Before you decide who to study with, you have to ask these questions to your training provider.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will the course take? How many hours should I study for per week?

We would ask how much time can you dedicate to your study? The more time available, the quicker you can complete your course. If you don’t have lots of time, we advise taking it step-by-step.

Can I work for the NHS?

Yes. In addition to nutritionists and dieticians, the NHS employs a range of health professionals that provide nutrition advice including health trainers, dietetic assistant practitioners and community food workers. You can search for jobs on the NHS jobs website using ‘nutrition’ as a keyword. Tip: ensure that you tick the box to search the whole advert rather than the advert title. This will ensure you see all of the most relevant results.

How easy is it to complete a diploma when I work already?

All of the School of Nutrition courses are online which means that you can study at a time and pace to suit you. If you can spare just 6 hours per week you can complete the Diploma in Weight Loss Management in less than 20 weeks. If you have more free time to study, then you can complete the diploma in a much shorter timeframe.

How do I set up and run a successful weight management clinic?

Our Nutrition and Weight Management Course contains lesson plans and resources for running an 8-week weight management course. This can be used with both groups and individuals.

How to Become a Nutritionist?

In order to become a registered nutritionist, you will need to complete a university degree. Future Fit offer an alternative yet comprehensive path to becoming a nutrition professional. For more information why not read our article on how to become a Nutrition Adviser.

What are the possible earnings for a Nutrition and Weight Loss Adviser?

You can earn £25-£40 an hour from one-to-one consultations or £80+ an hour running weight loss classes.

What can and can’t I do with a School of Nutrition qualification?

You will be able to offer advice to adults who are generally healthy and need help improving their diet and losing weight. You can run your own weight loss consultancy offering individual or group sessions to help people to successfully manage their dietary intake and achieve health and weight loss goals.

If you complete our Level 4 RSPH Nutrition Course, you will also be able to advise on sports nutrition, pre and post-natal nutrition as well as childhood nutrition.

You won’t be able to work with individuals who need specialist dietary advice due to a medical condition. This is the role of a dietician.

What is the difference between a Nutrition Adviser, a Dietician and a Nutritionist?

The nutrition profession encompasses many levels of expertise and a wide variety of career possibilities.

Nutritionists and dieticians have very similar job roles and there is considerable overlap in what they do. In general, dieticians tend to be more clinical and more involved with working with people with diet-related medical conditions. Nutritionists are more likely to work in research, the food industry, community projects and preventative health. However, you do find nutritionists who work in hospitals and dieticians who work in the food industry. Dieticians and nutritionists normally have degree level qualifications.

In addition to nutritionists and dieticians there are nutrition advisers, health trainers, personal trainers, wellness coaches, slimming group leaders and weight loss coaches who all practice nutrition to varying degrees and can have a number of possible qualifications.

Most members of the general public will only get referred to a nutritionist or dietician if they have a relatively serious health problem, yet there are millions of people in the UK who are overweight and suffering the consequences of a poor diet. Nutrition advisers are often much more accessible to the general public and have all the skills needed to advise and motivate individuals on how to eat better, move more, lose weight and improve their health.

When embarking on a career in nutrition it is important to choose a course with a reputable training company. Many companies sell poor quality training courses in nutrition that are not evidence-based and not recognised by any official awarding body. We are proud to have our courses independently recognised by the Association for Nutrition and awarding organisations such as the Royal Society of Public Health. This means that our students can have full confidence that their training is of the highest quality and will fully equip them for working in the nutrition arena.
