Click to read about the Nutrition Education Review Group
The Global Training Academy (GTA) draws from our longstanding experience of developing and delivering high quality education and evaluating its impact on healthcare practices. The GTA delivers innovative and effective Nutrition education and training to the health-related workforce, both nationally and internationally, with the view to impacting knowledge, attitudes and practices of practitioners and policymakers, such that this can translate to improved health outcomes. The GTA utilises the NNEdPro Global Innovation Panel (GIP) with Hubs in UK, Canada and Australia, as well as NNEdPro experience of assembling a Global Knowledge Exchange Faculty (GKEF) in response to specific education and training needs assessments by drawing resource from within NNEdPro and its Regional Networks both within and across borders.
NNEdPro’s unique approach of combining knowledge in technical aspects of Nutrition and Health, with bespoke training in Change Management and Leadership as well as Research and Evaluation Methods, ignites the potential of education and training as tools to achieve better healthcare and population health. Evaluation, impact assessment and peer-reviewed publication of outcomes are key features of the GTA’s development activities.
Knowledge exchange within the Nutrition community, faculty development and the provision of mentoring support in the form of academy membership for trainers and trainees are niche value added features.

The course provides an excellent foundation for those aiming to pursue nutrition-related research as well as for those interested in practical aspects such as clinical approach to an individual or population and public health perspectives. If you are interested in our courses, please contact us and visit our dedicated website.
We are currently scoping the potential for development of a professional modular Master’s degree in partnership with the University of Cambridge.

We have proven agility in assembling a Global Knowledge Exchange Faculty (GKEF) to conduct symposia or provide training worldwide, by harnessing the expertise within the NNEdPro Group and its scientific networks. Our GKEF is experienced in conducting regional and problem-specific needs assessments prior to designing, delivering and evaluating educational interventions to ensure maximum and sustainable impact as well as scalability. We also provide bespoke workshops to organisations to upskill their staff. If you would like us to conduct a needs assessment and/or provide tailored nutritional training in your region or organisation, please contact us and we would be happy to provide a preliminary assessment around your needs.
