Commonwealth Secretariat has launched various free resource/online platforms to showcase opportunities and empower young people within member countries to benefit from global innovations and envisioned that the greater use of technology will result in economic growth, sustainability, improved health outcomes and job creation.

The Commonwealth Resource Platforms are aimed at promoting open learning, distance education and opportunities to close the skills gap in-demand and high demand jobs in Commonwealth Member States.
