Apply for BSc Nutritional Therapy – Distance Learning course at University of West London



Nutritional therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care.

Nutritional therapy practitioners use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health.

This course is designed to meet the particular needs of persons studying for a professional qualification in Nutritional Therapy and is attractive to both complete newcomers to healthcare and to individuals who have already trained in other healthcare areas. The course provides the opportunity for full academic progression from Level 4 to Level 5 with an exit point that will provide you with a non-clinical qualification; through to Level 6 that will provide you with a clinical qualification in Nutritional Therapy.

Oxygen Freejumping was founded by Fred Turok, founder of LA fitness and Dave Stalker, former CEO at ukactive. Formed in late 2014, Oxygen Freejumping is the first national chain of trampoline parks across the United Kingdom.

A mezzanine level overlooking the main freejumping area will offer a state of the art café for parents to relax in with free high speed WIFI, homemade pizza and top quality coffee. With a selection of private rooms for children’s parties, the park will also be open to local schools looking to use the facility for PE lessons and after school clubs. Local businesses and sports clubs are also invited to come down to the venue for team bonding with a difference.

The venue is London’s first trampoline park and will create 50 new jobs in the local area with applications now being taken for court monitors, receptionists, trampoline instructors and food and beverage staff. As the first national chain in the UK, Oxygen has exciting expansion plans, with a second site opening in Southampton in October, five more sites planned for the next 12 months and a further 15 in the pipeline.

David Stalker, CEO of Oxygen Freejumping, says:

“Oxygen is the first brand of its kind in the UK and each Oxygen Park will ensure the highest standards of quality and service. As a result, our staff will receive the very best training.  We’re excited to open our first ever Park in West Acton and we’re looking forward to seeing local people find out just how much pleasure can be had from jumping!”

ANOTHER COMPETITION: WIN tickets to see “My Pet Monster and Me” at Harrow Arts Centre!

WARNING: We are going to be spoiling you with competitions and offers this summer.

Here is one from our sister site Mumsnet Harrow:


Sophie has always wanted a pet – a furry little friend to call her own. But she’s not allowed a hamster, because they are far too small. She won’t be getting a kitten, because Dad’s got an allergy. She’s certainly not having a dog, because they bark and dribble, and make far too much mess. Mum would go mad!

One day, Sophie sets off to the shops and buys herself something very special – a baby monster. A very BIG baby monster! But, this is when the trouble begins…

Blunderbus is proud to present this monster of a show which bursts to life with an irresistible blend of music, puppetry and high energy storytelling. Little monsters aged 3-7 (and their grown-ups) will love this funny, heart-warming tale.

When: Sunday 28 June 2015 2:00pm
Where: Harrow Arts Centre – 171 Uxbridge Road, Hatch End, HA5 4EA
Age: 3-7 years old

For your chance of winning two tickets to this great show, simply answer a question on Mumsnet Harrow Talk Board.

Competition is running only until next Wednesday, 24th June so enter quick! Good luck!
