Foot Care Training: Foot Care as a Career
Want a career change, been made redundant, just starting out, and want a recession-proof career where people are happy to see you, where you get paid upfront, and that you can work in part or full time? Become a foot care practitioner!
For a full list of the courses we run, and their dates, see http://thecollegeoffootcarepractitioners.co.uk/foot-care-courses/foot-care-course-dates-and-details/
You’ll also find our courses listed in the events calender on this site.
What do the courses consist of?
The courses consist of a theory component and a practical component. Once you’ve successfully completed and passed the theory element, you’ll be able to join a practical course.
The theory is through distance learning (you do it from home). Depending on your previous knowledge and time commitments, you need to allow 2-12 months to do your theory.
If you already have a qualification in anatomy and physiology, you may be able to go straight to the practical stage – contact us with details of your qualification.
You will also need to do some observational case studies along with your theory
The practical (2 days, 4 days or 2 weeks) takes place at The College of Foot care Practitioners in King’s Lynn.
The 2-week diploma course includes some extra, in-depth theory, and individual business and marketing help.
Who Can be a Foot Care Practitioner/Professional?
People from all backgrounds and ages can become foot care practitioners. If you’re friendly, caring and want to be your own boss, then you can be a foot care practioner! You can start up in practice from 18, and carry on until you want to stop.

After doing your course(s), which will I be – a podiatrist or a foot care practioner/ professional?
Our courses will help you have a career as a foot care practioner/professional; they are not podiatry/chiropody degree courses.
To become a podiatrist you need to take a degree in podiatry. To become a ‘foot care pro’, you need a lot less time. Of course, some people get so bitten by the bug they go on to take a degree.
The qualifications you get through this College are accredited by the NCFE and you will be able to set up in business (or work for someone else) right away.
I already do some foot care. Can I expand my knowledge with you?
Yes, of course! We offer a variety of courses and skills training.
