We’ve now added about 60 training modules like stoma care, epilepsy, and looking after someone who has had a stroke. These aren’t mandatory as a company, but a particular service might want to make it compulsory for their team. It’s given us so much more choice and flexibility and staff have been able to expand their knowledge. It was about changing the culture to embed learning and development at the heart of what we do.
Altura Learning are excellent. Training uptake amongst carers is fantastic, and the range of courses is very impressive!
Using Altura Learning has meant that staff have the freedom to complete training when they are able to and managers can monitor it closely, knowing that their staff are being trained to a high competency level. The system is easy to use and the range of courses is vast which gives us so many options.

My Dad has Parkinson’s disease. I told the staff that he could not smile. After watching the programme I now know that even a simple twitch of his lips means he is smiling at me. This has made me rethink. Thanks to Altura Learning I understand the condition and my relationship with dad is better.
As I am the Training Officer for over 350 people, Altura Learning offered our company a way forward to be certain that all of the staff were compliant with the mandatory training needed to work in the care sector.
It has proved to be such a simple, but effective way of training.
Altura Learning provides our incredible teams with access to learning that is high quality, accurate, visual-based learning. Our teams always have taken away learning to put in to practice from all the courses and their feedback has been really positive.
Altura Learning makes delivering training easier. I can assign training to staff when required and use their resources to support in-house training. Staff can also complete any further training they feel they require to support them in their roles. I can also monitor how staff are doing with training and if some staff are finding it difficult then assign them the extension activities. Altura Learning is a great additional tool for our training department.
We’ve really embraced the Bridge LMS and made it our own. We’re looking forward to executing the roadshows and sharing our new knowledge of Bridge and the training we’ve received from Altura Learning. We now have a wealth of best practice learning material at our fingertips. Initial feedback from our employees who have started using the platform has been very positive. One lady, who had been seriously considering giving up work because she couldn’t cope with technology, has now completed 100% of her training and has thoroughly enjoyed it; she’s telling everyone about it!
