Coursera and Commonwealth of Learning Workforce Recovery Initiative

by Ministry of Education


The Department of Education, Innovation and Gender Relations informs of the call for Applications to the Coursera and Commonwealth of Learning (COL) Workforce Recovery Initiative. Eligible citizens of Saint Lucia are invited to apply for an opportunity to register and enroll in one of several exciting university level courses offered online by Coursera.

The Workforce Recovery initiative is part of the Coursera community’s COVID-19 response which is aimed at helping countries, states, and cities reskill their unemployed workers to re-enter the workforce. While the Coursera platform offers several high quality and in-demand courses at no charge, participants in these courses would generally be required to pay a substantial fee to obtain the certificate when completed.
