Explore our learning offer for adult services
Antser Learning engages within sectors where human feelings, vulnerabilities and safeguarding will always be priority. We believe we can change the face of this sector by changing behaviours, challenging “the standard responses” and ultimately the outcome. We innovate, think outside of the parameters, continually change and progress, whilst always keeping human sensitivity at the heart of what we do.
We provide learning and development that enables positive change that focuses on the everyday challenges for those working with children, young people, families and vulnerable adults. This includes social work professionals, occupational therapists, other social care practitioners, provider services and partner agencies such as the education sector and health.
