One that’s accessible to everyone and provides exceptional learning experiences and support.
To be the healthcare sector’s learning partner for life, creating the best trained workforce by offering high quality immersive and interactive training via our mobile app and website. Learning and development that’s not only modern, rigorous, and comprehensive – but free at the point of access.

We are a remote team so you can work at a place that suits you. We operate across different timezones so flexibility is built in. We focus on outcomes rather than presenteeism and aim for work/life harmony rather than balance. Kids, cats and dogs often show up on our Google Meet calls and we are fans of walking meetings when you don’t need to be at a screen. Of course we’ll supply you all the IT kit of your choosing.

Most importantly, we are united in the mission to provide universal access to free healthcare education and we are unapologetically bold in our aims to transform the sector.
