Partnership with the Open University
Tim Blackman, Vice Chancellor of the Open University, said, "The Open University has built strong partnerships for over 50 years to make education open to all. We look forward to economic recovery and rebuilding the financial resilience of economies and individuals Financial education and access to it is more important than ever.
"Our relationship with MoneySavingExpert and Martin Lewis is based on a shared commitment and passion to inform and educate people in order to change their lives for the better.
"Our OpenLearn platform with more than 950 free learning courses is the ideal home for the MSE Academy of Money and we look forward to another success together."
Martin Upton, Lecturer in Finance at the Open University and senior researcher on MSE's Academy of Money course, added, "There is strong evidence that there is a need to improve public money management skills and confidence.
"This was the case prior to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic and, unfortunately, the aftermath of the current crisis has compounded those needs by putting further financial pressure on millions of households.
“It is great news that the Open University has partnered with Martin Lewis and his MoneySavingExpert team to offer this free online course on all major aspects of personal finance. The course is fun and especially helping adults of all ages improve their financial knowledge and money management skills. "
