NUTRITIONAL THERAPY EDUCATION COMMISSION (NTEC) VOLUNTEERS

NTEC, the accreditation body for nutrition education and training, seeks volunteers to support the work of assessing courses and developing training standards.

We are looking for people with skills and experience relevant to the assessment of professional training in nutritional therapy, and also in the assessment of post-qualification training and short courses in nutrition. The roles are voluntary and the time involved will count towards CPD.
If you would like to be involved in an important part in the progression and regulation of our profession, then please contact Carol Granger, by email on Chair@nteducationcommission.org.uk

Role Specification

Approximately 4-6 hours per month average.

These voluntary roles will involve supporting and working with existing NTEC board members. Two areas of particular interest are communications including social media, and developing standards in the higher education sector. The work requires confidentiality, accuracy and diligence. These roles may suit people working within training establishments, or in healthcare practice. A qualification in nutritional therapy or personalised nutrition is not essential, but a good understanding of the importance of functional and lifestyle medicine is important.

Most meeting take place by conference call, some occasional travel as part of an assessment visit or meeting may be involved.
