SENr is pleased to recognise the Dairy Council as a Founding Partner.
SENr has representation from many industry experts on its Board and Registration Committee. This includes Lead Performance Nutritionists from all four UK Institutes of Sport.
The English Institute of Sport (EIS), sportscotland Institute of Sport, Sport Wales and Sports Institute Northern Ireland have all pledged their on-going commitment to the Register:
‘The English Institute of Sport (EIS), one of the largest employers of nutritionists in the country, is set to show its support for the updated Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register (SENr) by ensuring all members of its Performance Nutrition team complete the new updated process for full registration within the next year.’ (EIS Website, October 2013)
“Nutritionists working in elite sport usually come from backgrounds such as dietetics, pure nutrition or sport science so the SENr is important in bringing these together and setting an agreed set of standards which provide quality assurance within applied nutrition.” (Kevin Currell, EIS Head of Performance Nutrition)
The sportscotland institute of sport supports Scotland’s top athletes to perform on the world stage. The performance nutrition team are committed to providing high quality, impactful performance nutrition support to Scottish and GB programmes. We are committed to supporting the SEN register and currently all staff are high performance accredited. The register has been very useful for recent recruitment as a minimum standard and also useful for dietitians or nutritionist seeking to develop in the area of sports nutrition to use as a framework for development. The SENr register is becoming the gold standard in performance nutrition accreditation and serves sports and athletes well as a mark of external quality assurance.
Irene Riach, Senior Performance Nutritionist
“Sport Wales fully supports the SENr to accredit and quality mark suitably qualified and experienced practitioners within high performance sport.
The SENr is important for developing the Performance Nutrition discipline as well as setting and maintaining professional standards among registrants.
All members of the Sport Wales Performance Nutrition team are fully registered with the SENr and this will be used as a key standard when employing future Performance Nutrition practitioners.”
Olivia Busby, Acting Lead Performance Nutritionist (2015)
The Sport and Exercise Nutrition register (SENr) is a valuable tool for recognising highly qualified and experienced practitioners working within High Performance Sport, ensuring that professional standards are met and maintained.
The Sport Northern Ireland’s Sports Institute supports this nationally recognised quality mark and at present all Performance Nutritionists working within the Sports Institute are fully registered with SENr.
