Case studies

According to 2023’s Business Barometer report published by The Open University (OU) and the British Chambers of Commerce, 73% of UK organisations are currently experiencing skills shortages, which remains one of the major challenges facing employers. 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 OU is ready to unlock the potential of your people. 

We’re trusted by:

  • 2,900 public, private and third sector employers
  • 73 of the FTSE 100 have used the OU to train staff
  • 150 local authorities
  • More than 490 healthcare providers
