Branch Lifelong Learning Officer, Calum McLellan, pictured above takes the opportunity to highlight this Open University opportunity.
“Employees in Scotland who are in furlough or face redundancy due to COVID-19 are being encouraged to apply for a new selection of fully funded modules by The Open University in Scotland that offer vital post-pandemic skills.
Supported by the Scottish Funding Council’s Upskilling Fund, the modules have been selected by The Open University (OU) and Partnership Action for Continuing Employment (PACE) to address specific Scottish skills gaps in IT, business, maths and engineering and support workers to reskill.

The Upskilling Modules will be delivered online through flexible distance learning from October 2020 and they are open to everyone with no previous qualifications required. Applications must be submitted by 24 July 2020 at www.open.ac.uk/courses/choose/upskilling-scotland”
