Upskilling Your Workforce: Preparing for the Future
The Open University is running a roadshow of events for employers across Scotland in 2019 - our 50th anniversary year - in partnership with the Scottish Council for Development and Industry (SCDI).
The world around us is changing. We are transforming the way we provide, produce and manufacture things. We have the advancement of technology, increased competition for public finances, and political uncertainty.
Scotland’s biggest asset is its people – their skills are the foundation for inclusive growth, equality and sustainability.
Re-skilling and upskilling your workforce will increase retention, boost their quality of life and prepare them for the future.
The Open University is the leading university for flexible in-work learning and we invite you to attend the following free informative skills sessions and learn how to achieve a thriving workforce fit for the future.
These events are open to all employers from Scotland’s third, private and public sectors. #OUroadshow
