OLT courses in Australia- latest enrolment milestone!

7th Nov 2023

Dear OLT Leads, tutors and participants

I wanted to give you the latest data on the total enrolments in OLT courses here in Australia, since we first started offering courses here in 2009.

As at November 6, 2023, there have been almost 140,000 course enrolments (139,640) by 90,000 individuals, (many people have taken more than one course).

Tutors have supported over 15,000 learning cohorts (15,019 cohorts). 

A truly amazing achievement that demonstrates the commitment of educators to their own personal learning and the wonderful support that tutors and OLT Leads are providing in education systems around the country.

Well done everyone!

Best wishes

Trish Rymer
