QualificationFoundation Diploma

A Foundation in Wellness - can underpin a multitude of career opportunities

Even opportunities not even conceived yet.

This course can be a very real investment in future employment security.

We all hear media buzz about how fast the world is changing and how most future jobs have not even been conceived. That is true; but it's also true that humans will always be concerned about their well being. People will always have a need for services to reduce the risk of health and wellbeing  problems, and other services to respond appropriately to those problems when they arise.

  • One part of this course gives you a fundamental understanding of the human physical and psychological condition, and develops your awareness of and capacity to respond to needs as they evolve and emerge in the future.
  • The other part of the course develops your capacity to assist and advise people to maintain or improve a better level of wellness in their lives.
The exact job opportunities of the future are uncertain. We can't be sure if fitness instructors or life coaches will be good career paths, or if the world will change. We can be fairly sure, though, that there will be strong employment opportunities for people with an understanding of wellness, and the empathy and communication skills to help others in need.
