The Open University


For over 50 years, The Open University (OU) has led the way in supported distance learning. The University has a proven track record and rich heritage working with organisations across a range of sectors to help them achieve their aims, solve business challenges and make a positive difference to society.

Alongside this, we have partnered with governments and educational institutions around the world to help them upskill and reskill local people to tackle skills shortages.

Specialising in developing high-quality learning materials, based on rigorous research and industry insight, the OU combines academic excellence with technological expertise to deliver flexible work-based learning. Our wide-ranging educational offering has helped us train a wide range of professionals including nurses, social workers, business leaders and digital professionals and has widened participation through the accessible way we deliver our learning.

The OU’s flexible and adaptable approach enables consistent educational programmes to be delivered at scale, across multiple work locations. Through minimising travel and the time needed in the classroom, the OU’s blended delivery model is shaped around the needs of the employer and responsibilities of the learner. This gives employees new skills and knowledge they can apply immediately to the workplace – increasing engagement and maximising return on investment.

This is why more than 2,800 employers regularly choose the OU’s learning solutions to develop their workforces. An impressive 75 per cent of FTSE 100 companies sponsor their staff on OU programmes and over 190 local councils and more than 470 healthcare providers to help them deliver services for their local communities.
