IHS has been endorsed and certified by Crossfields Institute

Crossfields Institute is an awarding organisation and education charity, based in England, specialising in the design, delivery and award of holistic and integrative qualifications in variety of sectors including health and social care and child development. The Institute is regulated by Ofqual (the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) (UK equivalent of the NFQ in Ireland) which regulates qualifications, examinations and assessments in England and vocational qualifications in Northern Ireland. This qualification is unregulated because the Institute for Health Sciences is based in Ireland, but is subject to the same quality criteria and standards as for a regulated qualification.

The IHS Diploma in Nutrition and Lifestyle Coaching is now endorsed and certified by Crossfields Institute (www.crossfieldsinstitute.com) equivalent to UK level 4 (Irish level 6).

The Institute of Health Sciences has been subject to a quality audit by Crossfields Institute to ensure that both the college and this bespoke qualification meet the required quality criteria and necessary standards. This self-regulated qualification (SRQ), delivered in Ireland, has been verified by Crossfields Institute as equivalent to UK Level 4 (Irish level 6), indicating the depth of study and level of difficulty involved in successful completion by the learner. The unit summary may be used as evidence towards recognition of prior learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector.
