What training do Slimming World group Consultants receive?

Slimming World has a dedicated training team, supported by a team of registered nutritionists and dietitians which delivers tailored training in the dietary aspects of weight loss, facilitating behaviour change and the importance of physical activity.

Ongoing training is provided for all Consultants. There is also a strong management structure in place to ensure that the quality and consistency of groups is maintained; this is monitored by regular group development visits and weekly one to support from a manager. Measures of success include weight losses, number of members achieving their goal weight, member retention and achievement of 10% weight loss.
