Oil and gas skills body OPITO has announced an arrangement with the Open University, one of the world's largest providers of distance learning.

Open University will use the money to help provide teacher and health training in countries in the developing world, where there is often lots of oil and gas industry.

The Open University has a program called TESSA (Teacher Education in Sub-Saharan Africa) which has reached over 430,000 primary and secondary school teachers since its launch in 2005.

It also has a program called HEAT (Health Education and Training) which was launched in 2010 to help sub-Saharan Africa stride towards its goal of 1 million more frontline healthcare workers by 2015.'

Students can study using distance learning, and don't need any previous academic qualifications to study at undergraduate level.
