Ted Learning delivers fun, engaging, memorable and impactful learning. We do this by using expert trainers and professional actors to create either observational or participative theatre, which fully complements and supports the theory. However the challenge is not just creating a fun and positive training day, its about really sustaining the learning and ensuring behaviours change for the long-term when back in the workplace.

EQUALITY AND DIVERSITY | Continued Support

All our delegates have full access to our ted learning HUB – a web-based platform that enables all learners to continue the engagement with the trainer and actors, see latest case-studies and blogs from the ted learning team and engage with other learners, discussing their own challenges and successes.
