Explore our learning offer for the health sector

Antser Learning engages within sectors where human feelings, vulnerabilities and data protection 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, families and adults. This includes social work professionals, occupational therapists, other social care practitioners, provider services and partner agencies such as the education sector and health.
