Advanced ICT Skills Development Project
With 60 per cent of the Commonwealth’s population under 30 years of age, the skilling of youth is a top priority for governments. The Commonwealth of Learning’s (COL) current focus includes course and programme development for information and communication technologies (ICT) and media skills that lead to employability and livelihoods. The Advanced ICT Skills Development project aims to reach 30,000 learners (of whom at least 50 per cent are to be women) through 60 innovative courses developed in partner institutions as open educational resources (OER).
