Commonwealth of Learning Strategic Plan 2015-2021
The theme of COL’s previous two strategic plans was “Learning for Development,” which focused on how education and learning add value to the development process. That approach encouraged COL to think beyond outputs to outcomes. COL has grown and developed from being an organisation with an output orientation to one that is outcomes based. // The post-2015 education agenda reflects the organisation’s further evolution. COL is committed to promoting equitable access to quality lifelong learning for all— believing, in effect, that access to learning opportunities will lead to progress in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. // COL’s new motto will therefore be “Learning for Sustainable Development,” which is also the theme of this Strategic Plan.
