Sports Nutrition

About the Level 3 Sports Nutrition Certificate

Food is fuel and our bodies cannot function properly without it. In order to be successful, athletes need to eat strict diets which provide optimum nutrition. However, with so many conflicting ideas about what constitutes a nutritious diet, it’s often hard to know what’s right. This is where a sports dietician or a sports nutritionist comes in.

This distance learning course has been designed to teach students all they need to know about sports nutrition. Learners will study a number of engaging units, which cover topics ranging from the digestive system and weight control to fluid balance and protein supplements. The course should take approximately 110 hours to complete, but we recommend you move at your own pace.

Who should study this course?

This home learning course has been specifically designed for individuals who have an interest in working in sports nutrition. The qualification is also suitable for those who already work in the sports industry and want to develop their knowledge, and those with a general interest in nutrition.

At Stonebridge College, we do not ask our students to have any prior qualifications before enrolling on one of our home study sports nutrition courses. All we ask is that you have an interest in the topic, and that you are willing to engage in independent study.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of your online learning course, you will have a broader understanding of sports nutrition. If you want to become a sports dietician, you will need to study a dietetics degree at undergraduate level or undertake a relevant postgraduate qualification.

You do not need a degree to become a sports nutritionist, however many employers will require you to be registered with the Association for Nutrition (AfN). To do this you will need a degree in nutritional science. Other careers in this field include:

  • Personal trainer
  • Gym employee
  • Dietetic assistant

At the end of this course successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement from ABC Awards and Certa Awards and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the components the learner has completed as part of the course).

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards and Certa Awards Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Stonebridge Associated Colleges has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. ABC Awards & Certa Awards endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

*Regulated qualification refers to those qualifications that are regulated by Ofqual / CCEA / Qualification Wales
