Testimonial

When signing up to undertake the Professional Certificate in Food & Nutrition Coaching Course at Nature Care, I was extremely nervous as I had never studied via correspondence and I am the type of person who likes support and encouragement to know I am on the right track. Trainer Sally Kelvin has absolutely exceeded this need for me. Sally provided nothing but the best support, encouragement, feedback and above all belief in all of her students. It is so amazing all of the above qualities and more that Sally has provided has been mainly through the online forums or private messages, often I wouldn't experience this unless face to face . Never could I have imagined the sense of support Sally has given me would be this great. I thank Sally whole heartedly and believe (without having met her in person mind you), she is one of the most beautiful human beings I have come into contact with. - Rebecca Norman

testimonials

I discovered that I really loved the Anatomy & Physiology short course it was fascinating, challenging and very personally rewarding. The course notes and references were very clear. My trainer Inga Saliba, provided great links to the best of online material relevant to the subject (appropriate to our level) and some extra more challenging material for the intellectually curious.

I initially signed up for the face to face training at the college before Covid 19. I am now a convert to the online course and will continue my studies in this format.
Thank you Inga you helped ignite a passion I never knew I had! – Sandra
