THE OPEN University has announced plans to close its Leeds centre with a trade union claiming that up to 49 jobs and student services could be at risk.

Leeds is one of seven regional centres affected by the plans announced yesterday.

The University and College Union says that almost 500 jobs could be at risk nationally.

However the Open University (OU) said that it did not expect the proposed change to result in any compulsory redundancies.

The OU is proposing a new structure which would see regional offices in Leeds, Bristol, Birmingham, Cambridge, Gateshead, London and Oxford close.

An OU statement said: “We do not expect this proposal to result in any compulsory redundancies, but expect that affected staff would need to relocate, or take voluntary severance or early retirement.”

If the plan is approved, the OU would retain offices in Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Milton Keynes, Manchester.

The OU statement said: “The university has almost 200,000 students, with many combining their study with employment and other commitments.
