FutureLearn offer a diverse selection of courses from leading universities and cutural institutions from around the world. The courses are all free of charge and are delivered one step at a time. They can be accessed on mobile, tablet and desktop so you can fit in learning around your life.
There are lots of different courses available in a whole range of subjects including law, languages and cultures, politics and the modern world and literature. Taking part in one of these course can be a great way to focus on spending some time on yourself and doing something you enjoy. In particular, the online mindfulness course will teach you techniques to reduce stress and improve your wellbeing.
If you are interested in learning more about the condition of the person you care for or how you can support them, there is a whole range of courses that might be of interest to you under the heading of Health and Psychology. You can learn about the science of medicines, how to prevent falls, cardiovascular disease, the fundamentals of Parkinson's disease, caring for people with psychosis and schizophrenia and much more.
We'd love to hear how you get with these course so if you do take part, please do let us know how you get on.
We have a new project funded by the Cooperative Trust
Are you aged 14-25? Are you worried about your future? Our new project can help.
If you are not studying, working or on a skills course OR you’re not sure what you want to do next, we can help. Our new project will offer 1:1 support to help you identify where you want to be, as well as things that might be stopping you getting there. Support will include advice, advocacy and skills training.
