Funded Microcredentials for the Community Learning and Development (CLD) Workforce
Supported by The Scottish Government, The Open University (OU) is offering a number of fully-funded places across its suite of 5 online teaching Microcredentials for people working or volunteering in Community Learning and Development (CLD) roles. These accredited courses will start in June 2022 and will run for 12 weeks.
The available courses will allow staff in the field to look at how they can deliver a more digitally accessible service while broadening their reach to more young people, adults, families and community groups. The skills and knowledge gained from the courses can be applied to a wide range of CLD contexts including youth work, community development, community building, adult learning.
The OU is also offering fully-funded places on 18 accredited Microcredentials in subjects such as business and management, leadership, sustainability and computing & IT. These courses are available at both undergraduate and postgraduate level and will give learners the skills they need to progress in their career. These courses are open to people who are aged 18+ and resident in Scotland.
Applications for both funded programmes will close on 15 May 2022.
