Time and again, research has shown that people remember things best when they learn by doing. Not just once or twice, but repeatedly and regularly.
Intensive courses, by their nature, do not create the best environment for learning. They may seem convenient but that convenience comes at a high price - your standard of education.
We take our lessons from athletes who consistently train using repetition over a longer period of time, this allows for the muscles to adapt in the same way that our practical skills need to develop. To run a marathon requires more than 3 weeks training to be top in the field.
We also choose to offer single days rather than 2 day weekend courses to our students. Our experience has shown us that students are able to retain a greater amount of information as well as it better develops their hands on skills through regular contact. This atmosphere of encouragement helps our students to keep on an even keel and remain highly motivated.
At NLSSM we are passionate about helping our students to be their very best. BTEC Levels 4 & 5 are professional qualifications, so it's only fitting that we teach them professionally, and that's why we will never offer our courses as an intensive option.
Why and What is Continuing Professional Development (CPD)?
As in all health care professions, CPD’s are a lifelong process of broadening your knowledge and hands on skills. As professionals we have a responsibility to stay abreast of new information and research. At NLSSM we want to inspire you, refresh, revive and revitalise your massage and soft tissue skills. Increase your client care and rehabilitation success rates. Our aim is to make this an experience that you will want to repeat, to motivate you to be the best you can be!
NLSSM has a wide choice of remedial and rehabilitation courses that will broaden your expertise, exercise the mind and inspire your hands to try different approaches – all the while improving your client outcomes. You can browse through the individual courses at the side or see what’s coming up in our month–by–month listing.
NLSSM also offers a Bridging Program than can be specifically designed for you should you want to take your CPD courses and turn them into a BTEC level 5 Sport and Remedial Massage Therapy qualification. You will find further information under the Bridging Program section of this website.
