What do employees think?

The course was a great way to engage worldwide and bring our rich heritage to life

"We're delighted to have been able to share the fantastic M&S innovation with so many people. The course was a great way to engage worldwide and bring our rich heritage to life. The enthusiasm from learners exceeded our expectations and we were delighted to work with FutureLearn and the University of Leeds on this course."

In my mind, the experience betters that of the classroom.

"There is a lot of talk about online learning never replicating the richness of the classroom experience. I was blown away with how social was blended into the learning experience on FutureLearn with comments, peer reviews, and the ability to follow, like and reply to other learners. In my mind, the experience betters that of the classroom."
