Online Learning Resources

The Open University has a free online learning platform called OpenLearn.

This is a great way to support the UK Government advice which recommends online learning as an effective way to maintain well-being and good mental health.

OpenLearn has over 950 short courses (varying from 1-1000 hours of study), where learners (of all levels) can explore a vast array of subjects, get inspiration, build skills and confidence and earn recognition if they wish (via badged open courses), all for free.

The UK government has launched an online 'Skills Toolkit' platform to support members of the public to build skills during the coronavirus outbreak and beyond.

The new platform offers high quality and flexible short online courses in digital and numeracy skills to support people to gain skills that employers need and help kick start the country’s economic recovery.
