If you are interested in availing of any of this training, please liaise with your supervising social worker.
All Future Learn courses are online and free. Future Learn are a private company wholly owned by the Open University; “we believe learning should be an enjoyable, social experience, so our courses offer the opportunity to discuss what you’re learning with others as you go, helping you make fresh discoveries and form new ideas”.
