Foot health practitioner course

  • Question
  • Updated 1 year ago
Hi, I'm currently studying the foot health course and have just submitted Assignment 1. Module 1 was a BIG module - so interesting and very challenging.  I'm most definitely moving on to the next module with more confidence and enthusiasm from what I've learnt in module 1. If there is anyone in the early stages of the course, please say Hi ( or message me in e-pearl). Would love to keep in touch with fellow students who might be tackling the practical at the same time as me!

Hi, I have just started, completed assignment one and working on 2. How have you all managed to book your practical sessions. Sorry to be thick, I have obviously overlooked something important.

Hi Mandy. I haven't booked my practical either. I think the others who have are doing the Fast Track option. I'm pretty sure that I will get asked to book it  when I've done a few modules. I'm only on module 2. But i'm planning on going to B'ham too.

I'm due to start Module 9. Easiest way I've found is to sit down with my hard copies and highlight bits that I feel are most important and then in a different colour highlight stuff I need to look up in my dictionaries etc. I've written a lot of notes. Printed off every completed test paper to.

Hi Sophie
I'm hoping to do the end of July I originally put down for Bude in September but have decided to try and do it sooner.  Only trouble is nobody replies from the college I have sent numerous emails and also tried to phone several times which worries me slightly x

It does sound as though we may be in the same group.  I had wanted to do Bude but apparently they shut for July/August which is why Im doing Birmingham the end of July.  The college told me I would get an e mail a month before the course date. x

I'm thoroughly enjoying the course although I worry how much I am retaining! The last time I did biology was at school many years ago and so its trying to remember the different vocabulary etc.  I'm currently working on assignment 7 and hoping to submit it in about a weeks time.  x

I think it's impossible to retain everything and I think a lot of it is for referring back to as and when needed. I'm currently on module 6.. I spoke to the college and you only have to complete up to module 10 before the practical, the last 2 modules can be completed afterwards. Suki, I've booked to stay at the Hallmark Hotel, Strathallan. It's on the same road as the college :)

I stayed in The Premier Inn 6mins walk. There is also an Ibis Styles up the road from there. Another girl stayed there. If you contact Kay at Stonebridge she will give you a list. No, you will not have forgotten. I've not started we are all just finishing Unit 10 as you need the practical to upload to UNit 10 . All is coming together now though :-)

Hi everyone ☺️ I started the advanced fast track FHP course at the beginning of this month and just started module 4. I agree the modules are big - so much to take in!! Really enjoying it though... would be nice to talk with you all to see how you are getting on and when your taking your practical (scary stuff!) Sophie

Hi Sophie

Module 4?! - you're doing really well!  I started two weeks ago and am still trying hard to absorb all of Module 1!  I don't want to move on to 2 until I know it inside out.  Am struggling to retain everything to be honest - perhaps it's my age!  Lisa

Hi Lisa, are you doing the fast track too? I'm not. There is a LOT to take in in module1 isn't there! I had to keep writing it out and drawing diagrams to help embed it . I'm on module 2 now and looking at main arteries in the lower limb (cue rabbit in the headlights look!) .

Hi Lisa - thanks for replying. I worked as a veterinary nurse for 6 years and have found that a lot of the anatomy and terminology is the same, of not very similar. Perhaps that's why, although now I feel like I may be rushing it! So much to learn.. I've struggled the most with learning all of the bones/muscles in the leg/foot, there are SO many! I have ordered a large poster for my kitchen... how often are you studying? Have you used the tutor support yet? Sophie

Hi Sophie, I agree, I struggled with bones/muscles too and now I'm adding arteries and veins to that list! It really is another language to me as I worked in education for 16 years! I might look at posters myself. I'm hoping the reading as well as countless YouTube videos will help embed the names and locations in my head!

Hi ladies, I'm doing the Fast Track (bad move?). I was a medical secretary years ago so some of the terminology is familiar but how the hell as you supposed to pronounce some of them? Let's hope we don't have to! I'm just reading at the moment but not really sinking in. You Tube and posters sound like a good idea, I'll look into that! I have help from a good friend whose been in the business for 10 years, so that's helpful but she too had studied Anatomy and Reflexology before so was on step ahead. It's all new to me. Feels like it'll be a year before I feel ready to do the Practicsk, yikes!!

As much as I'm trying to remember everything, I'm not sure if it's possible?! I'm hoping a lot of the information is there to refer back to as and when, but could be wishful thinking?! Hi Elaine, the lady at the college provisionally booked me in for practical end of March, but I think I will be pushing it back! ! At the moment I'm studying for a few hours every other evening to prevent frazzling of the brain lol. Sophie

Its lovely to meet others doing the course - thanks for saying hi.

I don't think the Fast track is a bad move. It must be designed to enable you to absorb the info quickly. I've not done any studying for 20 years so its taking a while to get my brain focussed so the longer route is better for me. Saying that though, initially I hoped to speed through the modules and be doing the practical by summer but I'm thinking that might be a little optimistic now. 

Sophie, did you have to produce a 5 minute video in module 2? I've seen one of my assignments for module 2 is demonstrating where the pulses are on the body (or maybe just the one on the feet). A video seems daunting lol

Hey Nicola, I did pulses of the foot in unit 3. With the fast track you have the literature and once you've finished studying you take a multiple answer test and move on to the next one. No videos, however I did watch several on YouTube which were useful :)

Hi Paul. I'm waiting for all the info to arrive as only just enrolled. Are you doing the fast track? I opted for the normal course (advanced) as thought it would be less intense but not sure if there is much of a difference. What do you think?

Hi Maria. I'm doing the regular course. ive done 1 module and on the 2nd. TBH ive found it quite hard, but i have NO medical training at all. never seen words that are so long. I printed up the question paper and worked through the module and got the answers, other wise wouldn't be able to do it ! now I regret wagging school when I was younger !!

Nice to hear from you Paul and Maria. I'm doing the Diploma version - RQF Level 3? There were so many course options available but I'm happy. It really is challenging! I'm currently trying to decipher arteries of the lower limb! I've had a look at the assignment for this module and there are a lot of words required and a video! eeek!

ps...I can't quite work out the 'connections' section of PEARL as I can't find Sophie, Lisa or Elaine on there. Its a shame this isn't integrated in some way.

I think Pearl is the Funding part of the course. I chose the Fast Track as it was the cheapest option and there didn't seem to be difference in the end achievement but maybe I'm wrong?
