University leads way for UK in signing up to United Nations learning platform
13th June 2022
University of Gloucestershire has become the first university in the UK to join a United Nations learning initiative linked to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) after developing a data skills training programme in collaboration with international partners.
The University’s free eLearning Opening the Appetite: Data Skills for Global Development programme has been included on the UN:SDG Learn platform that helps learners and organisations to select courses that will advance their sustainability skills and deliver outcomes for the SDGs.
The UN:SDG Learn platform has been developed collaboratively by the UN, multilateral organisations, and sustainable development partners from universities, academia and the private sector.
The Opening the Appetite: Data Skills for Global Development course was developed as part of the ERASMUS+ funded Development Counts Research project led by the University in collaboration with Gazi Üniversitesi (Turkey), L-Università ta’ Malta (Malta) and Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (Spain) and piloted with students from all four universities.
