Common Wealth of Learning (CoL) – Coursera Workforce Recovery Programme


The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all walks of life. The lockdown has led to the loss of jobs and livelihoods due to various businesses closing down. At the same time, it has given an opportunity to reskill ourselves to gain employment in the same sector or otherwise.

Recognising the catastrophic effects of the pandemic on millions of people who have become unemployed, or are on the verge of losing their jobs, Coursera, one of the world’s leading e-Learning providers, has recently announced the Coursera Workforce Recovery Initiative as an immediate solution to these challenges.

COL has partnered with Coursera, to make a difference in the lives of thousands of people by providing quick access to reskill/upskill for regaining employment.
