Case Studies

The Open University Business Barometer 2021 found that more than six in ten organisations are currently experiencing a skills shortage. A sustainable skills development strategy is vital to address this challenge.

Thanks to our flexible blended learning approach, you can upskill your staff with minimal disruption for them or your organisation. Not only that, our national reach means that you can rely on high-quality consistent training, even if your business is spread across multiple locations or based in an education ‘cold spot’. 

Whether you’re a local authority looking to upskill staff, a private business seeking to plug your skills gap, or a healthcare trust hoping to enhance patient care, The Open University (OU) is ready to unlock the potential of your people. 

We’re trusted by:

  • 2,800 public, private and third sector employers
  • 75 of the FTSE Top 100 have used the OU to train staff
  • Over 190 local councils
  • More than 470 healthcare providers
