Job Skills in Developing Countries: 1 Million Courses

Commitment by

International Commission on Workforce Development

In 2009, the International Commission on Workforce Development (ICWFD) committed to provide access to one million online courses over a three-year period for students in developing countries. ICWFD offers access to job skills training in developing countries via its e-Skills360° e-learning program. Through e-Skills360°, students can choose from over 1,500 online courses in Information Technology, Business, and Professional Development. In addition to allocating courses (via PIN codes) through National Program Coordinators, courses may also be allocated to additional countries, institutions, and partners sourced, in part, through the Clinton Global Initiative.
