An Asian nation of about 5.4 million people, Singapore possesses a wealth of education resources. Singapore’s institutions and professionals contribute to the advancement of open and distance learning and the use of information and communications technologies for education in the region.


COL has collaborated with Singapore in the areas of open/innovative schooling, teacher education and technology-enabled learning.


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.

In Singapore, COL has partnered with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
