Grenada is a small state of the Commonwealth with a population of just over 105,000, which is largely rural. Enrolment rates are high for both primary and secondary education.
Current work in Grenada is primarily in the areas of higher education through the Virtual University for Small States of the Commonwealth, as well as technical and vocational skills development and technology-enabled learning. Learners from Grenada continue to benefit from COL’s open online courses and other resources.
Partnerships are fundamental to COL’s work. Strategic partnerships allow COL to broaden its reach and engage at global, regional and national levels, while implementation partners support COL’s work in communities and institutions across Commonwealth Member States. Partners include multilateral organisations, regional bodies, national governments, government agencies, foundations, civil society organisations, public and private (not-for-profit) institutions and the private sector. COL partnerships assist in improving and extending teaching and learning services to people in the developing Commonwealth.
COL’s partners in Grenada include:
- Ministry of Education, Human Resource Development, Religious Affairs and Information (formerly Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development)
- Grenada National Accreditation Board
- T.A. Marryshow Community College
