How the Open University can help your small business

The Open University student profile is different from that of conventional campus-based universities.  

Their students study part-time, often while working, and because the study is challenging and demanding, their students develop a variety of valuable skills and qualities that are relevant to the work place. With almost 180,000 students studying across the UK and beyond, they can offer you the largest talent pool of any university.

Here are just a few of the ways the Open University works with business to help their organisations to excel;
Advertise vacancies free of charge via their online vacancy service ‘Jobzone’
Apprenticeships – information to help your organisation benefit from the Apprenticeship Levy
Professional Learning & Development – training solutions including apprenticeships, qualifications and over 1000 free courses to inspire and inform you.
