Open College Network West Midlands Centres: Lifetime learning for all

Creating New Courses

Creating New Courses
 
Open College Network West Midlands Courses contain units from regulated qualifications unless they are customised (please contact your Business Development Manager about customised provision). Courses should be designed to meet the needs of learners and to facilitate progression.

To set up a course you must already be a Recognised Centre and have qualification approval for the regulated qualification you want to develop the course from.
