Exciting changes underway at Body in Balance Training

In addition to the Bayly School of Reflexology practitioner diploma course at Body in Balance Training, I will soon be launching my own independent, Body in Balance Training, professional, practitioner complementary therapy courses (all insured) that go well over and above National Occupational Standards (NOS) basic level 3 practitioner requirements for complementary therapies.
Most importantly, they meet all of the performance criteria and outcomes for complementary therapies currently on the QCF (Qualifications and Credit Framework).
There will be no dumbing down, lowering of standards or short courses just to get bums on seats. Like our Facebook page for further updates if you are considering enrolling on a professional, practitioner complementary therapy course in 2015 whether or not you wish to learn a new skill or are considering a change of career with a view to becoming self-employed. Enquiries from those who wish to update their current Level 3 qualifications are also welcomed.
