Notice for all current Students and Graduates of the College of Foot Health Practitioners
We would like to advise all our students that it is “business as usual” at the College – Modules are being marked and returned (albeit somewhat slower as staff are working from home) and additional flexibility on payments for further diploma courses to keep those enquiring minds active! Product orders can be placed and posted out on a weekly basis.
We have according to Government advice cancelled the training clinic’s for April and May, we are aware that this is a concern for students and patients alike, but we are absolutely committed to resuming normal service as soon as possible. Priority will be given to both students who are waiting to complete the Clinical Training and to patients who have had to miss appointments.
Whilst we are in troubling times the future is bright and hopeful for Students and FHP’s. Once the lockdown is lifted there is going to be huge potential out there both with private patients and college patients.
We are confident that once this difficult time is over opportunities for both Students and FHP’s will be extremely positive.
The College is now booking clinical training fortnights for July & August. If you are student waiting to complete your training please give Sharon a ring at the College (0121 559 0180) to confirm your dates.
The dates are:
6th July to 17th July
27th July to 7th August
17th August to 28th August.
The College is endeavouring to make all necessary changes to assist with social distancing and PPE will be supplied.
Information regarding Masterclasses and Two Day Preps will follow shortly.
WHAT WE DO - FOOT PRACTITIONER COURSES
This College teaches the skills required for confident private practice. The training is Podiatrist-led and equivalent to NVQ level 4 - the level appropriate to practitioners who diagnose and treat independently.
