Welcome to the College of Foot Health Practitioners

This College teaches the skills required for confident private practice. The training is Podiatrist-led and equivalent to NVQ level 4/HNC (www.gov.uk), the level appropriate to practitioners who diagnose and treat independently.

Training at this College enables direct listing on application to the Accredited Register of Foot Health Practitioners - the only register for this occupation approved by the Professional Standards Authority under the Health & Social Care Act, 2012.

Founded in 1996, this 21st Century College teaches up-to-date technique in a modern learning environment. There is no better way to learn. You will treat a good number of real people with real problems under the direction of tutors who practice in their own right. You will learn what needs to be done from those who do it daily.

Our Mission

Private practitioners are absolutely necessary to the needs of their local communities, more so now than ever before. With long waiting lists and the low level of satisfaction expressed by many patients it is clear that local authority clinics and hospital-based departments can never meet the real needs of the population in the matter of foot health. Our services are necessary. They must be safely delivered with expertise and understanding.

Quality Policy

This College delivers a Level 4 Diploma in Foot Health Practice, the level and delivery of which is assured by NCFE. This guarantees that the content of our training course is of a high standard and meets the rigorous quality assurance of a national awarding organisation.

PSA Register

The Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care sets standards for organisations holding registers for health and social care occupations and accredits those registers that meet the standards.

Before you consider training elsewhere based purely upon cost, consider that:


  • • the most expensive training is the cheap course that leads nowhere or needs top-up •
  • • you may need further confidence building if you accept very short periods of practical training •
  • • ongoing support after training is provided indefinitely by this College •
  • • our training leads to direct entry into the Accredited Register of Foot Health Practitioners •
  • • we also provide Continuing Professional Development and Practice Advancement •
