Professional Learning & Development
With more than 40 years’ experience of higher education, we know how adults learn. Learn about our range of learning and development services (including apprenticeships), and how we use digital technology to maximise both learning and workplace performance.
The Open University specialises in providing part-time, flexible, higher education.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our teaching and the support we provide. This extends to the business services we provide to employers, which include:
- Apprenticeships: We’ll train your apprentices to give them on-the-job experience that’s specific to your workplace.
- Staff training: Discover our range of courses and qualifications - which include short courses, certificates and diplomas, as well as the undergraduate and postgraduate degrees for which we’re renowned.
- Customised solutions: We can tailor a business solution that is unique to your organisation. Learn about our customised solutions.
- Staff accreditation: We provide CIPD-accredited training, and we can accredit your in-house training, enabling your staff to gain a recognised qualification.
These are just some of the ways in which we work with organisations and their staff to help them to excel.
The Open University provides a quality distance-learning route for our sponsored staff. The materials and methods of teaching are first rate, and our sponsored staff have consistently fed back to us their satisfaction with the teaching and materials.
