Level 4 Cert. in Nutrition for Institutional Services or Physical Activity & Sport (RSPH)


This qualification is an extension of the Level 4 Award and is suitable for people who require an understanding of nutrition and diet and their effect on health. It is particularly relevant for people working in the health, care, fitness or catering professions who might have a role in the promotion of healthy eating or the preparation of meals, menus and diets.

Learners on this qualification will gain an understanding of the nutritional requirements for a healthy diet, the effect of diet on health and the importance of hydration. These principles are then applied to fulfilling the dietary requirements for either a) individuals utilising the catering services of a particular institutional food service or b) individuals participating in sport. 

Course content includes:

The qualification is divided into two units - Principles of Nutrition and a specialist study into one of five institutional settings.

Unit 1: Principles of Nutrition:

  • The sources, functions and uses of macro and micro nutrients.
  • Energy, nutrition and hydration requirements of individuals throughout life.
  • Effects of diet on health.
  • Legislation as it relates to labelling and advertising of food. 

Unit 2: Specialist Study:

  • Different nutritional requirements of groups of people relying on the catering service operated by a particular type of institution, or improving performance in sport.
  • Current requirements relating to the particular institutional or sports performance scenario.
  • Development of expertise in staff in the catering service operated by a particular establishment, or the use of performance enhancing products in sport.

Candidates must attend the Level 4 Award in Nutrition course initially, which may be offered as a 5 day or a 3 day attended training course, followed by additional tutorial-supported home study.  As demand for Level 4 fluctuates, dates for courses are scheduled subject to demand and any advertisied dates may be subject to change.

This qualification costs an additional £250 on top of the Level 4 Award course costs, plus VAT.
