Nutrition



Effective nutrition education establishes a level of competence in the area of food and nutrition service. Appropriate face to face, in-service training is required regularly to optimise the skill set of the workforce. With the changing landscape of emerging nutrition issues, the recent advent of the Australian Dietary Guidelines and accreditation requirements are driving change within your industry. Face to face training has been proven to be the most effective method of mobilising change in a workplace.  

The goal of in-service training is to equip participants with the knowledge and skills they need to gain to make decisions around food provision for clients. In-service training provides the opportunity for qualified facilitators to respond to a group’s level of knowledge.
