Universities are well positioned to support these learner and employer needs for CPD and higher level skills
Universities need to seek alternative income streams
Universities need to consider alternative modes of delivery to meet these needs
The University of Plymouth has developed a flexible CPD framework allowing short courses and work based learning activity to be accredited through a Bachelors and Masters programme
The Learning from WOeRK project is developing OERs
to support learning in the workplace
