Alison was founded in Galway in 2007 and has grown organically to become a major force in free online education and skills training. Today, with more than 12 million learners in 195 countries, Alison is changing how the world learns and up-skills. They are committed to equality and access to education and skills training irrespective of gender, geography, economic status or any other barriers that can so often stunt potential. They offer a range of free courses that meet the many diverse needs of their learners. The UN declared in Article 26 of the 1946 Declaration of Human Rights that “Education shall be free…”. This statement has always inspired them. Alison is free of charge to you. It’s still a business – albeit a socially-focused one. They are a social enterprise making their money through advertising, merchandise, and the sale of Certificates and Diplomas, should a graduate choose to buy one.
