Our Teaching & Assessment Process


Our teaching and assessment process has been designed so that you can easily and rapidly get a working grasp of the key concepts around using nutrition as a tool for improving health. For each module you study you will:


  • Study the core materials that teach you anatomy & physiology, how normal function changes during disease process, how nutrition fits into this picture as a potential cause and/or as a tool for improving the situation.
  • Take an exam to revise and refine the key concepts.
  • Evaluate case studies and develop an action plan based upon the material you have learned, your own independent research, and key coaching skills.
  • Develop a tailored dietary and meal plan that showcases an understanding of the science and how to apply it, delivered in a practical format - ie the preparation of food.

Kelly Little - The Mighty Beetroot

Kelly is a leading example of how people that already have a business in the food and wellness space can use the in depth training from the 'Diploma in Culinary Medicine' to take their business to new heights and explore new markets and opportunities.


"The Mighty Beetroot was initially created as an outlet for my own journey to health after being plagued with many inflammatory joint issues.  

But over the first year, I saw a real need for others to embark on similar journeys and take control of their own health and wellness and that's when I decided to learn more so that I could help others and share what I had learned along the way.  

Here I am now 4 years later as a trained chef but also armed with the knowledge I gained from the Diploma in Culinary Medicine.  

This course gave me sound and reliable theory from which I have developed a training arm of my own business running educational and practical workshops centred around eating for various health issues such as hormonal balancing, mental health, and immunity to name a few. "
