The Open University Announces Plans to Close its Leeds Centre

THE OPEN University has announced plans to close its Leeds centre with a trade union claiming that up to 49 jobs and student services could be at risk. Leeds is one of seven regional centres affected by the plans announced on September 15, 2015. The University and College Union announced that almost 500 jobs could be at risk nationally. However the Open University (OU) announced that it did not expect the proposed change to result in any compulsory redundancies. The OU is proposing a new structure which would see regional offices in Leeds, Bristol, Birmingham, Cambridge, Gateshead, London and Oxford close.

The Open University Announces Executive Changes

The Open University (OU) has appointed Peter Horrocks, Director of the BBC's World Service, as its new Vice-Chancellor. Peter Horrocks has been responsible for leading the BBC's international news services across radio, television and online after a career with the corporation spanning more than three decades. He replaces Martin Bean, who announced in July he would be returning to his native Australia for a role with RMIT University. Mr. Horrocks will take up his new position on 5 May 2015. In the interim, Professor Tim Blackman, currently Pro Vice-Chancellor, Research, Scholarship and Quality, will assume the role of Acting Vice-Chancellor following Martin Bean's departure later December 2014.
