Subsequent to the huge success of our first Mac-Nutrition Mentorship for Professionals we are announcing new dates for our second! The 2-day Nutrition Course for Professionals will take place on the 26th & 27th of April.
WHAT is it and WHO is it for?
This Mentorship Nutrition course has been developed to allow professionals such as personal trainers, nutritionists, dietitians, S&C coaches etc to develop their skills, knowledge and diversity in practice whilst gaining a unique insight into practicing as a successful nutritionist. The weekend nutrition course combines lectures, seminars and practical workshops to give attendees the best tools to become a better practitioner and to be able to offer the highest level of service to those they work with. Please note, nutrition course applicants must have a good background knowledge in nutrition with a basic grasp of physiology and biochemistry. We will however provide successful applicants with some optional pre-nutrition course reading material prior to the start of the weekend.
What will you get out of it?
As well as topping up your nutritional knowledge, this nutrition course ultimately teaches you what you can't necessarily learn from a textbook, online or in the classroom; how to apply knowledge to practice working with real-life people in the real world! Do you want to know how to set up a fully individualised nutrition plan from start to finish? Do you want to know how to market yourself, build a website and create opportunities within your chosen career? Do you want to broaden your knowledge and skills to prepare you for working with a wide variety of clients?… and do you want to learn how to do all of this from the UK's leading nutritional consultancy? If the answer is yes, then the Mac-Nutrition Course for Professionals is definitely for you!

How do I apply for a place? – Application Deadline
Places are limited (10) as we are keen for this programme to be highly intensive, allowing more 1-2-1 and group contact to the Mac-Nutrition Team for personal support and mentoring. We also want to be able to offer this mentorship to the best possible candidates therefore we are including an application process (downloadable at the bottom of this page). Places will be allocated based on merit, on a first come, first served basis and therefore applications will close once all positions have been filled; get your application in early to increase your chances of success.
