Schools and colleges

At The Open University in Wales we work closely with schools and colleges to provide opportunities to both students and staff.

For teachers and support staff

We work closely with Welsh Government, the Education Workforce Counciltrade unions and other organisations in Wales to ensure that Open University courses and qualifications are relevant for all levels of staff in the Welsh education sector.

We are the experts in flexible, part-time study and offer a huge choice of options.  Whether working in a support role, teaching assistant, qualified teacher, or looking for leadership development, we have the both undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications and standalone modules to update knowledge and skills and support continuous professional development.

Take a look at some of the free courses and resources we've put together for teachers, school governors and teaching assistants on our OpenLearn platform.

For Sixth Form students

Studying an Open University module during your Sixth Form studies can be of real benefit to both academic studies and university applications.

Motivated and able Sixth Form students are able to study a range of university level modules alongside their AS or A2 studies.
