FutureLearn, the online social learning platform owned by The Open University, has today published new research revealing that employees’ chances of promotion and securing a new role are enhanced by taking an online course. Nearly three quarters (73%) of employers said they thought online courses were either very valuable (33%) or valuable (40%) when considering the promotion of an existing employee.  Professional development through online learning also carried favour among employers when hiring. Online learning was a ‘differentiating factor’ when assessing candidates with similar qualifications or experience for a new role. This was especially true for those in mid-management (73%) and junior/entry level roles (71%). It was less decisive in more senior roles, but still more than half of employers (61%) said it could be a differentiating factor at director level.
