I don’t work for The Open University, I have studied with them in the past but no longer do due to fee increases for coures. However I do still think they are a very worthy organisation. Therefore I am quite happy to promote their events. The following is from a mailing list I’m on, Tori Landau is the contact:
Below are the rest of the events confirmed for March, there might be another event but currently due to RL the person can’t confirm. Hope to see you there and please feel free to pass this on to anyone you think would be interested.
