Saint Lucia is a small island state of the Commonwealth with a population of about 182,000. Tourism is the largest contributor to the economy and enrolment rates for primary and secondary education are high.
Current work in Saint Lucia is primarily in the areas of technology-enabled learning, technical and vocational skills development, and tertiary education through the Virtual University for Small States of the Commonwealth. Learners from Saint Lucia have also benefited 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 Saint Lucia include:
- Ministry Education, Sustainable Development, Innovation, Science, Technology and Vocational Training (formerly Ministry of Education, Innovation, Gender Relations and Sustainable Development)
- Sir Arthur Lewis Community College
