Our short courses offer a new range of options for continuing professional development focusing on priority issues within the sector.
More than half of the faculty’s 18,000 students a year are sponsored directly by employers through partnership and commissioning arrangements.
The School of Health, Wellbeing and Social Care works in partnership with health and social care organisations to develop learning material relevant to the sector as a whole. We have worked with the trade union Unison, Wirral County Council, membership organisations and professional bodies such as the Fostering Network and The Royal College of Nursing to develop courses relevant to the sector.
In the video below, Jo Williams from Wirral County Council explains why she worked with The Open University to develop a course on personalisation that was relevant across the health and social care sector.
