Public sector

The Open University is a key provider of business services to the public sector.

We provide business solutions, including delivering learning and development, to industries including health and social care, leadership and management, education and IT.

We work with the NHS - one of the world’s largest employers - to develop more nurses and paramedics than any other higher education institution. We also train one in ten of all social workers, and work with nearly 200 local authorities and councils.

Hear what Dawn Allen, Lead Resourcer at the Ministry of Defence has to say about why The Open University is a great choice for apprenticeships.

Milton Keynes University Hospital - delivering digitisation through Degree Apprenticeships.

“The NHS recognises that digitisation is critical to get the best out of a limited workforce, and most importantly to get the best outcomes for our patients. We see digital degree apprenticeships as one way of doing this. We want to make sure that we attract and retain the best possible people into our health service and into Milton Keynes University Hospital, and we see the apprenticeship scheme as a way of doing it.”

Joe Harrison, Chief Executive at Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
