Skills for work

The Commonwealth of Learning(COL)’s Skills for Work initiative is aimed at closing the skills gap for in-demand and high-demand jobs in commonwealth nations.

Skills for Work takes a two-pronged approach:

  • Through hybrid models that apply open and distance learning techniques, it helps women, girls, youth, people with disabilities, entrepreneurs, and the unemployed at the community level to acquire relevant 21st Century, life and essential skills, and access in-country mentorship support.
  • Through varied partnership models, it enhances ODL capabilities of both TVET institutions and other non-governmental organisations involved in skill development to share and adapt open educational resources; develop capacity in blended teaching/learning practices; scale up outreach efforts; and, respond to the market needs.

What our learners have to say?

It was a wonderful journey. I learned a lot along the way. Thanks to "Commonwealth of Learning - Google Skills for Work Bangladesh" for sponsoring this course. Thanks to Dr. Charles Severance. I'm lucky that I took his "Python for Everybody" before this "Google IT Python Automation" course. His course and the open book were super helpful.

Just completed the Google Data Analytics specialization course from Coursera. I must say it's one of the best courses out there for beginners who are planning to start their career or switch their career as a Data Analyst. This course started with the very basics of data and ended up making the participants capable of completing a real-life case study by themselves.
