Okay, because one ignorant individual, in one HR department in whatever organisation you are referring to suggests it's worthless does not mean it's worthless. I am suggesting that the opinion that it is worthless is in itself worthless and incorrect, if you have formed an opinion based on the opinion of one individual in whatever organisation that is also ignorant. Contact the OU and see what they can do for you, do some research online about job prospects after doing an OU degree. One thing you will learn when studying at undergraduate level is to try and form opinion on evidence and support that opinion with facts.
I tried to explain to you, why I have this opinion, it was a wasting of time, it doesn't matter, you may be right, I understand why incompetency are everywhere you go today. I personally know people who worked hard for a diploma, an MBA or a doctorate. They deserve the jobs, and any responsible employer will choose them, despite your opinion.

As you can see in this picture, there's a statement of participation. Not to say about the courses which are available for free, all of them are outdated, nothing for which there's a demand on the employability market. These are courses for mums and school leavers.

HR department loled about this when I have put it in my CV. Open University is the same with common sense and a hobby.
George you don't seem to grasp the fact a full undergraduate degree was being talked about , not a certificate of participation. A certificate of participation is still very worthy of being put on a CV, it shows personal development and a willingness to use your own personal time to learn. You appear to have a rather simplistic view of development and employment, something perhaps for you to develop your knowledge of...
