Good nutrition is essential to give a child the best possible start in life, and to prevent a range of serious health conditions. This Association for Nutrition certified interactive e-learning course covers the varying dietary requirements of children, from birth through to adolescence.

The Pilates Matwork course was detailed, practical and challenging. The course content was delivered in a variety of ways i.e. online learning and face-to-face suiting learning styles. Scott and his team were very helpful at the end of the phone/online. I was lucky enough to walk straight into a Pilates teaching job as soon as I qualified. Thank-you FutureFit!
