OpenEd improves careers with life-long learning

Paul struggled through school and didn’t understand why. An undiagnosed ADHD impeded his previous pursuits of higher education. Without the degree, he was stuck in a job he hated, unfulfilled and unhappy. U of G’s OpenEd opened doors for Paul to discover his abilities, his confidence and ultimately the next step in his career.

It was the really the first time I succeeded at trying to learn. Just a great overall experience in kickstarting that I’ve got more, I can give more, I can learn more, I can do more.

Paul wanted higher education; he struggled with learning and was diagnosed with ADHD in his late twenties.

Returning to school mid-career Paul’s story proves that learning is a journey. He reminds us that we have the power to improve our own lives, with the flexibility to learn, work and raise a family.

OpenEd offers over 300 online courses and 36 certificate and diploma programs for upskilling and professional development to improve careers with online, blended and in-person models.
