About the Nutrition Society Training Academy

The Nutrition Society's Training and Education programme was first launched in 2011, and was relaunched in 2018 as the Nutrition Society Training Academy (NSTA) in acknowledgement of the changing learning and work environment. The Society has a geographically diverse membership throughout the UK, the island of Ireland and globally, which training programmes must reach. Recognising this, the NSTA was developed to offer a new and exciting range of learning options. For example, whilst continuing to maintain key face to face workshops, the NSTA also delivers multiple webinars with a focus on blended-learning. 

The Training Academy was formed to deliver two identified needs areas; the skills gap (figure 1), and ongoing learning, with the aim of enhancing and investing in the improvement of nutrition science.

A range of different nutrition science related topics are offered under the NSTA umbrella in order to deliver on these two identified needs areas. Visit the 'webinars and workshops' and 'pre-recorded webinar' sections of the website to view the current schedule. 

CPD endorsement is applied for with all webinars and workshops, and attendees receive a certificate and summary reflection sheet at the end of each training session completed.

The Training Academy programme is designed specifically for you. The Society's aim is to assist and support nutrition scientists and practitioners at different stages of their career development, and that means the Society wants to hear from YOU.

The NSTA value your opinion and are always happy to hear ideas and thoughts for future training sessions. To receive training calendar alerts and to submit your contribution, please contact the Society's Professional Development Manager.
