HAVING engaged extensively with the Commonwealth of Learning (CoL) to launch the Workforce Recovery Initiative in Guyana along with Coursera, Minister of Education Priya Manickchand has been recognised as a Commonwealth Wise Woman and is now a mentor on the Commonwealth Wise Woman Mentoring Project.
The Education Minister was instrumental in launching the Workforce Recovery Initiative programme in Guyana that offered 4000 free online courses to Guyanese from reputable universities through Coursera, a press release from her ministry noted on Saturday.
Since launching this programme on September 5, 2020, over 53,371 Guyanese registered to pursue courses in various areas and 43,305 certificates have been issued to 9,473 persons. Guyana has become the leading country under the Workforce Recovery Initiative as it relates to persons registered and graduates. According to the release, the advocacy for continuous and lifelong learning and the proactiveness of the minister most likely came to the attention of the Commonwealth of Learning, because of the successful rolling out of the Coursera programme spearheaded by the minister and the outstanding response from Guyanese.
