The level of obesity in adults and children continues to rise each year. The statistics are startling: World Health Organization experts predict that the vast majority of British people will be overweight by 2030.  75% of men and 66% of women will be officially fat by this date. Of those 33% of women 36% of men will be obese. It is estimated that illnesses associated with poor eating habits are already costing the NHS more than £500 million per year.

We have all heard the old saying “you are what you eat.” and it still holds true. If you stick to a balanced healthy diet full of vitamins and minerals, then your body and appreciates it. You’ll feel stronger, healthier, more energised - better all round.

Those who limit their diet to processed foods undoubtedly suffer the consequences of not giving their bodies what they need to thrive.

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.
