Foot health practitioner course

  • Question
  • Updated 2 years 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 Suki. Having the paper course materials is so much easier than trying to read everything online. Mine are covered in highlighters haha. I am starting Modual 9 at the minute. The info if tricky and I'm finding it hard to remember it all but I'm super excited for my practical. xx

Hi Suki,
I,m doing the 'regular' advanced course so I can take my time. I started last month and am now studying module two. They are very interesting but its taking me a while for it all to sink in. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. x

Hi Suki,  sorry for late reply.  I did my prectical end January, although I had completed the modules, someone hadn,t completed the final assignment -  no 12.  Best to check with the college.  I got the impression it wasn't necessary but obviously every bit of knowledge helps.  
Hope this helps.

Hi everyone, I'm Alex.
I am currently on module 6 The Nervous System.  I've been studying since late last August, whilst also working full time and being a mum to an energetic 6 nearly 7 year old!

It would be lovely to hear from anyone :) xx

Hi Elaine, nice to hear from you!
I'm waiting for a list of practical dates to be sent to me. Where are you doing your practical? I know I'm doing mine in Bude, down in Cornwall :)
That's great, I would love to get into nursing. What are you going to specialise in?

Hi everyone..it's been great to find this forum and read your comments . I have spent days looking at various course providers for FHP courses and thinking of going for it. Course fees vary. I was hoping to attend a class to learn the theory to be able to ask questions but I suppose distance learning is the way forward, I too would like the practical and time spent in lovely Bude whilst learning seems a win:win situation. ...

I highly recommend joining groups on Facebook once you are registered on a course. There are a few to join and I've found them so interesting and it really supports my learning.

Stonebridge foot health practitioners forum

Foot health practitioners students and graduates from all colleges forum

Stonebridge don't appear to be very proactive in communicating these forums which are so useful when you are distance learning.

I'm doing the RQF diploma and hoping to dot practical next year.

That's great... I'm off to Bude in October. Really looking forward to it! Hope all goes well with your learning. I'm currently working part time with 3 kiddies, it can be tricky but just set aside time to sit and learn. X
