Open University roadshow is coming to Dumfries in October

The Open University is having a series of Roadshow events around Scotland, including Dumfries in October.

The theme of the event is the importance of upskilling and reskilling staff to meet the needs of every sector of the Scottish economy and to keep Scottish companies competitive.

The invite from the Open University states: “The world around us is changing. We are transforming the way we provide, produce and manufacture things. We have the advancement of technology, increased competition for public finances, and political uncertainty.

“Scotland’s biggest asset is its people – their skills are the foundation for inclusive growth, equality and sustainability. Re-skilling and upskilling your workforce will increase retention, boost their quality of life and prepare them for the future.

“The Open University is the leading university for flexible in-work learning and we invite you to attend the following free informative skills session and learn how to achieve a thriving workforce fit for the future.”

The event is open to all types of employers from Scotland’s Third, Private and Public sectors.
