“An excellent course” “very informative” “well executed” “would definitely recommend” “enjoyed all aspects of the course”
These are just a few of the comments from delegates at recent Recipe Analysis: Maximising Accuracy courses. This established one-day course was set up over 15 years ago and is endorsed for CPD by both the Association for Nutrition and the British Dietetic Association. It is now available in a virtual format in addition to the face-to-face sessions that are held in London.
The sessions are ‘live’ and are highly practical and interactive, with lots of opportunity for discussion, as well as networking with and learning from other attendees. This is equally true of the virtual format, where breakout rooms and an energiser are popular with attendees – this is not a webinar! The small group size means that attendees feel supported, and post-course follow-up support is available. These aspects of the course are appreciated by attendees:
“very engaging and interactive” “really enjoyed the practical cooking element”
“good group size for discussions” “welcoming and comfortable environment” “lots of support” “I felt comfortable asking questions” “great networking opportunities”
So what does the Recipe Analysis: Maximising Accuracy course cover? As well as providing lots of information on legislation (including signposting to relevant guidance), food composition data, steps in recipe calculation, and comparisons with chemical analysis, the course is highly practical and interactive. We prepare a recipe, recording detailed information along the way, to help in understanding the factors that need to be taken into account during recipe calculation. Practical nutrition calculation exercises are also completed, including for the recipe that was prepared.
Although the course was originally designed for dietitians and nutritionists, it is also accessible for those without formal nutrition qualifications, who need to undertake recipe analysis. This includes dietetic support workers, dietetic assistant practitioners, development chefs and specifications technologists. The small group size, practical format and availability of support, especially in the face-to-face sessions, are particularly helpful for these groups.
So if you prefer an active learning format and are looking for a training opportunity that provides hands-on experience, networking with your peers, and access to support, Recipe Analysis: Maximising Accuracy may be a good choice for you.
