Education News & Media Centre | White Papers | Oxford Open Learning

The Oxford Open Learning Trust regularly carries out research which aims to highlight educational and social issues which we feel need to be brought to the attention of politicians, the press and the general public.  We also try to carry out some light hearted pieces which also educate and inform, like the “Would you pass?” piece. If you would like to find out more about any of the Oxford Open Learning Trust’s research, or wish to contact Oxford Open Learning’s media outreach, please call Greg Smith on 01865 304842.
