Training Evaluation Scheme
The Training Evaluation Scheme was intended to review current nutrition related themes which are delivered in selected vocational and further education training programmes. To achieve this, the Scheme evaluated the Candidates perception of the nutrition aspects featured in the course as well as their career goals and aspirations.  The scheme objectives included:

  •     Reviewing current training course materials (nutrition related topics)
  •     Recognising and benchmarking standards of learning in nutrition
  •     Highlighting good practice in training courses in nutrition

The ultimate aim of the Scheme was to promote and acknowledge courses that deliver high quality training provision in nutrition.  We feel that by recognising and supporting selected training programmes, individuals will be valued for their nutritional skills and knowledge and therefore can successfully pursue a career in the field.

An online questionnaire was used to capture this feedback alongside asking questions with reference to our Workforce Competence Model in Nutrition*. This questionnaire was circulated amongst course candidates for completion after their course.

*AfN did not assess teaching styles/abilities or look to alter the training providers curriculum or learning outcomes.
