A&P Courses – online or classroom based?
For many years it has been widely recognised in the educational field that the most effective learning takes place when the learner’s senses are activated on a multiple level – in other words, Seeing, Hearing AND Doing!!!
That’s why you’ll only see us promoting classroom based learning and not on line/PC based learning, so that ALL learning styles and senses are stimulated and included.
It also offers the learner the opportunity to question and clarify a subject as complex as A&P……there and then.
Take a look at the short clip below at one of our interactive classroom based sessions and decide which way you’d like to learn!!!
The A&P courses run from 9.30am to 1.30pm.

I am very happy for the choice I made. I just passed the ITEC Level 3 Massage , Anatomy/Physiology and Pathology Diploma. I say that my level of English is not so good, but our teachers Helen and Suz knew every moment how to make us understand more and better. I can only thanks them for their patience and commitment. You are amazing! Thank you for all your support!

It took me quite sometime to find the right school to attend in order to obtain the ITEC qualification in Massage, and my choice couldn’t have been better! The level of professionalism, the depth of the knowledge transmitted and the atmosphere in class were absolutely amazing all the way through. Helen has the incredible ability of teaching a complex subject like Anatomy & Physiology in a very comprehensible, thorough and funny way, making her classes always interesting and never boring, and Suzanna, with her strong personality and constant attention to her students, proved herself as an excellent Massage teacher. Without any doubt I recommend the School of Natural Therapies to anyone interested in obtaining a qualification backed by a high level of professionalism and knowledge

‘If you want to learn anatomy for bodyworks, look no further than SNT. Helen truly brings the subject matter to life and makes it relevant in a way that sticks: a hugely informative, fun and rewarding course.
Rebecca (August 3, 2017)
If you are thinking of applying for ITEC Level 3 in Anatomy, Physiology, and Pathology, at this school, have no hesitation whatsoever. Helen, the tutor for this subject, is talented and inspiring. Her passion, enthusiasm, and approachable manner made the subject come alive and her visual aid maquettes and interactive classes made a complex subject easy to absorb and left us wanting to learn more. Yes, it is an intensive course, but with Helen’s teaching, guidance on handing in assignments at the right times, and the support she gave us, this course is achievable at a high standard.

This course (level 3 diploma in massage and anatomy & physiology) has been a invaluable guide for me and has given me practical as well as theoretical knowledge of all aspects of the massage world. The most exceptional part about this course was its teachers, who not only taught us everything we needed to know to pass the exams, but truly considered what we should know, giving us insiders knowledge about the industry, customer care. They also gave us a greater understanding of massage practice than what was required for ITEC with a greater variety of strokes and techniques. They were invested in our success and never unwilling to answer a question, even after a lengthy lesson or via an email. I strongly recommend studying with the school of natural therapies who have given me the skills and nurtured my confidence in massage practice.
