The online education revolution

Every day, millions of students, teachers and support staff across the globe, are participating in a learning revolution: the COVID-19 pandemic has upended the centuries-old tradition which saw students travelling to a physical location to learn. Education and training has changed dramatically, with the distinct rise of online learning, where delegates study remotely on digital platforms.

In response to this digital revolution, The National Medical Weight Loss Programme (NMWLP) has converted its’ 2-day training programme into a series of bite-sized videos covering each of the modules.
