Thank you for bearing with us whilst we have considered our options for the delivery of the Portfolio Preparation Day. We have taken the decision to convert this to an online format for at least the next three workshops and have identified additional dates for the 2021 calendar to support registrants to progress their Full Practitioner Registration. We hope to run the November 2021 workshop face to face, but will make a decision on this nearer the time.
SENR Accreditation and Endorsement
There are many courses available which claim to equip someone to provide nutritional advice to athletes. The purpose of SENR is to promote high standards of education and services in sports and exercise nutrition. Any education you undertake therefore also needs to meet the standards identified.
SENR has begun a programme of accreditation for MSc/PgDip/Cert in Sport and Exercise Nutrition. Any student successfully graduating from an SENR accredited course (MSc or PgDip) will be automatically eligible to join the SENR Graduate Register (upon submission of registration form / fee and character reference form). Any RD or AfN Nutritionist will be eligible to join the Graduate Register on completion of the PG Cert.
Endorsed Undergraduate Courses
The undergraduate programme endorsement process recognises that the course programme has been mapped to the SENR knowledge competencies at an introductory / basic level. Thus, whilst the undergraduate degree would need to be supplemented by an appropriate postgraduate qualification for an individual to be accepted onto the Graduate Register, SENR endorsement denotes that the undergraduate element of SENR Graduate status has been achieved through this programme of study.
Higher education institutions looking to gain SENR Accreditation or Endorsement should contact BDA Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Louise Sutton, Course Lead at Leeds Beckett University has kindly written a useful Case Study for other programmes applying for accreditation.
SENR Learning Activity Endorsement
SENR is delighted to offer its Learning Activity Endorsement Process. The SENR endorsement process has been developed as a flexible tool that can be applied to a range of educational activities both for Registrants and other sport and exercise nutrition stakeholders. Activities may include:
- Conferences and events
- Training days
- Single modules or a series of related educational activities
- Online learning (single modules or a series of activities)
In granting endorsement and release of SENR logo, the SENR (through the BDA) is confirming that the content, format and hours involved are appropriate to the subject matter and intended audience.
