One of the things we look for when we choose people to work closely with (our Associates), is their commitment to 'give something back' as a volunteer to the community that they work in.
This week is Volunteers Week, an annual celebration of the work that volunteers do, everywhere. Now in its 35th year, the annual campaign takes place 1-7 June every year and sees charities and voluntary groups get together to recognise the contribution volunteers make to our communities every day. You can find out what's happening at the Volunteers Week website. You can support the celebration by getting involved and by using the hashtag #volunteersweek on social media.
So, thank you to all our Associates who volunteer, and volunteers everywhere!
2019 marks the 50th Anniversary of The Open University. Since its birth, the OU has supported over two million students, and continues to spark imaginations, leading the way in teaching and learning innovation.
To celebrate this landmark year, the OU will be shining a light on its world class academics, who are at the forefront of ground-breaking research. The OU was revolutionary 50 years ago, and is still very much a world leader in distance learning and pioneering research today.
Our Managing Partner is an OU Alumnus and continues to support learners whenever possible.

Our customised accident investigator training received some great feedback this week. One delegate from Ainscough Crane Hire Ltd said "This was a fantastic course - really very helpful indeed".
The two-day course is well-paced, encouraging all delegates to be actively involved through group exercises and realistic case studies that apply to their working environment. Our Investigator Handbook and materials for event and causal factor analysis are particularly well-received.
All our accident investigation training is tailored to suit your sector; we will work with you to create relevant case studies and where possible we will use your accident reporting documentation (accident reports and investigation report templates or forms) during the training.
We have now delivered this training for rail, tram, bus, social care, engineering, retail and construction organisations.
See our accident investigation training pages for more information, or contact us to discuss how we might work with you.
