This course is suitable for those preparing food for Hospitals, Educational Establishments, Custodial Services, Care Services or the Armed Forces (you select one of these specialist units).
Nutrition for Institutional Food Services is available for an immediate start as a home-learning programme (which is combined with personal tutorials and tutor support and feedback at every step of the way). This means that you can carry out your studies at your own pace, and you’ll be assessed for your qualification by completion of a workbook and assignments (there is no final exam).
The objective of the qualification is to increase knowledge and understanding of the nutritional requirements for a healthy diet, the effect of diet on health and the importance of hydration, and is particularly relevant if you have a role in fulfilling the dietary requirements for individuals utilising the catering services of a particular institutional food service.
All learners will take two units: Principles of Nutrition (for all learners) and you then choose one of the Nutrition for Institutional Food Services units: Hospitals (unit NUT 4.2a) Educational Establishments (unit NUT 4.2b) Custodial Services (unit NUT 4.2c) Care Services (unit NUT 4.2d) Armed Forces (unit NUT 4.2e).
