The Commonwealth of Learning (COL) Skills for Work initiative is aimed at closing the skills gap for in-demand and high-demand jobs in Commonwealth Member States by providing skills required for decent employment and entrepreneurship and by paving the way for attaining skills, enhancing skills, lifelong learning and growth.
We at COL, in partnership with Coursera, Grow with Google and national coordinators, congratulate all learners of COL-Coursera and COL-Grow with Google Scholarship for their participation as the first cohort within the initiative. As the initiative closed for the first cohort on September 30, 2021, we are deactivating the account of the first cohort to provide opportunity for another new learner to the initiative..
We encourage all learners under the first cohort to reach out to their country-level coordinator, where one exists, through whom they were recruited.
