IHS Course Recognition

Academic Certification

The CI Level 4 Diploma in Nutrition and Lifestyle Coaching (VRQ) is approved by Ofqual as a UK level 4 regulated qualification. As a regulated qualification, it guarantees learners a high quality learning experience and employers, members of the public and others that the learner and IHS have reached the required standards.

The CI Level 5 Diploma in Nutrition and Lifestyle: Evaluating their Role in Chronic Disease Development is approved as a UK level 5 Self Regulated Qualification (SRQ), which means that is designed, delivered and awarded to the same quality standards as a regulated qualification, but is not regulated by Ofqual.

The CI Level 6 Diploma in Personalised Nutrition and Therapeutics is approved as a UK level 6 Self Regulated Qualification (SRQ), as above.

These qualifications are awarded by Crossfields Institute (CI), an awarding organisation and education charity, based in England, specialising in the design, delivery and award of holistic and integrative qualifications in sectors including health and social care and child development.
