Hi Isaiah,
I've just finished my 12 course assignments, only the final to complete now. I need to finish soon as I will need my certificate for the summer so that I can get insured. I've already got some work lined up!! Yay
I loved the course, my tutor Hilary was a real star and marked my assignments really quickly and gave useful feedback.
Good Luck

The course can be challenging, I did plenty of research alongside each assignment and then kept a research/ideas and information file. This information has been invaluable in allowing me to track the latest research and information and means that I now have great resources for the future.

I have based a couple of business ideas on the areas that I have decided to specialise in.

I hope that you enjoy the course as much as I did.

Balens and Holistic insurance provide competitive insurance quotes as long as your course is NCFE validated, which of course ours is!

Hi Babs sorry for the delay in getting back ive had my head stuck into assignment 5 just finished it this evening. Im finding the course really good, i am already a personal trainer which includes level 3 nutrition so im deepening my knowledge in diet and nutrition to further aid me in helping my clients. The course i have found quite well structured with plenty of information in your  books which with that and researching the latest information via the Internet makes for very interesting reading indeed. Im almost half way there and looking forward to the next assignments if you need any pointers feel free to drop a message ill keep an eye on the forums

Hi, I just started studying Diet and Nutrition Advanced Diploma..


Hi, I just started studying Diet and Nutrition Advanced Diploma. I am looking at the questions (there are 5 and have 5 marks each). I need to know how long the answers have to be. The text looks like an introduction to each of the questions asked. Can you please let me know from where I can download or read online journals/books regarding the subject. I don't know what is expected since it is the first assignment. Thanks.

Hi JM I've just started this too, with no idea on how long the answers have to be etc.   Have read through the first Assignment so hope to finish my assignment one this week.   Would be good to keep in touch and see how we both go with it.    I am going to do a general search online and see what I can find out first.

Hi Jane, thanks for your reply and yes we can keep in touch. I was searching online too but I am stuck in Q1. I am more confident in answering the rest. If you can list any sites/journals, I'd be grateful. I will do the same :)

Hi Stuart, can you give us some advice on how to answer the questions in assignment 1? Like - how long should each question be and anything on research to enhance your answers. Thanks :)

So what I did was read the material all the way through. Looked up words and things I didn't understand. But all the answers are basically in the material. I wasn't sure how long each answer need to be. But I'm also studying accountancy, and kind if adopted then same technique that for each mark; make a valid point and explain it. For each question on assignment 1 was for 5 marks, so I tries to make at least 5 points and explained them, trying not to waffle like I do :) but I don't think there is a limit to what you should write, as long as you get all the correct points across I'm sure that's all that us needed. Also worth reading their how to study (I think it's called) that came with the first assignment. That should give u pointers

Im not sure yet. I wanted to do this course to help myself, as I am type 1 diabetic and wanted to understand nutrition. But I have been thinking of maybe doing a personal trainers course, but they are quite expensive, but we shall see :) I need to get into shape first so I can practice what I preach. But I am on way to gaining charted accountant status, so I have the business acumen :)

Hi, I am a teaching assistant in a secondary boys' school and I would like to implement a healthy eating and fitness plan for our students since the current situation is not so good. I am also a Zumba instructor, I practice PiYo (pilates & yoga form of exercise) and I would like to spread the love of an active lifestyle :)
