Our Story

“The root of happiness is altruism – the wish to be of service to others”

Inspiring learning that improves quality of life

Our founders built everything from scratch, responding to a gap they identified in the care market: making sure carers were receiving specific training and a unique learning experience. We’ve always been passionate about providing the best service to our members and innovating learning in the care sector. We can proudly say that giving to others has always been and will always be at the core of our DNA.

For more than 20 years, we’ve created high quality, media-rich online care training for those working in or aspiring to work in the residential or home care sector. Now, with the support of our clients and our parent company Bolton Clarke, we are expanding into new sectors, introducing new high-end software and technology and delivering accredited learning solutions.

Our new name and brand, Altura Learning, further emphasises our ambition. Inspired by altruism and altitude, ‘Altura’ is as unique as we are. It conveys a genuine passion to always aim higher and the selfless desire of our learners and industry to improve people’s quality of life.
