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.

It has been a resounding success. We’ve had a great relationship with The Open University during the delivery and creation of [our] course and I think we are going to work with them quite a lot more.
