ITEC level 3 Certificate in anatomy and physiology for the complementary therapist

Changes in syllabus content are common and as a provider of an anatomy and physiology course we have kept up with all the changes by adding content to our e-course.

A common question is: what is the difference between ITEC and VTCT?

The answer is very little. In the early 2000’s the department for education got all the exam boards together to unify their syllabi for the anatomy and physiology courses that they examined.

We used to offer the VTCT qualification as well as ITEC but now there is no point as the VTCT bought ITEC a few years ago and the qualification has been merged to be called VTCT-ITEC ITEC level 3 Certificate in anatomy and physiology for the complementary therapist

A bit later on, ITEC (the international examinations council) went on to unify their syllabi for all complementary therapies and included beauty therapy in this. This was when hair and nails were added to the syllabus.

Pathology was always part of the ITEC syllabus but again this was extended to cover literally hundreds of pathologies. The way we have chosen to teach that part of the course is a drag and drop exercise, matching the name of the disease or the disorder with the description. If students are unsure there is a glossary for them to refer to, helping aid the learning.

ITEC also increased the number of muscles to be learnt from forty to over one hundred. The origins and insertions and actions are needed. This is quite an onerous task to learn and again we have provided a comprehensive guide.

If you are unsure what needs to be covered ask your college for the ITEC syllabus. We include it within our anatomy and physiology e-course platform.

Over the next few blogs we will look at the sorts of questions you might be asked in your ITEC exam.

Here are a few examples some that we have made up and some that ITEC allow us to circulate
