We host a range of training and educational courses for our members and other members of the dietetics workforce.

BDA Classroom courses provide quality assured education and continuing professional development programmes for dietitians and dietetic support workers.

For dietitians, we offer courses in specialist areas of dietetic practice, professionalism skills, and leadership and management competencies.  Courses are provided to suit those at different levels of the career framework.

We also offer a range of programmes to provide formal training for dietetic support workers. These have been developed into a Dietetic Support Worker Award. There are four core modules and one supplementary module. Delegates that complete three or more modules will be awarded a full award certificate.
