Open College Network West Midlands Centres: Lifetime learning for all

Aims of Open College Network West Midlands

The aims of Open College Network West Midlands are to:
  • Promote access to education and training at all levels, including entry to higher education, especially for those who have benefited least from available provision;
  • Improve the quality and flexibility of learning opportunities across the region through the promotion of curriculum development and a comprehensive quality assurance package;
  • Promote the comprehensive and strategic use of credit and the national credit framework, in all sectors across the region and offer opportunities for adults to gain credits for their learning wherever it takes place.
We are committed to providing a high quality and responsive accreditation service that promotes widening participation, social inclusion and lifetime learning for all. We support flexible, responsive and quality assured learning opportunities in a wide range of contexts, including in the classroom, at work, in the community, and through distance and e-learning. 
Open College Network West Midlands is a not for profit organisation. We invest our resources in supporting our existing products and services, the development of new qualifications and the expansion of our services. We are proud to be a registered charity promoting charitable objectives.
