Commonwealth Education Hub launched in Bahamas
The Commonwealth Secretariat has launched a new knowledge sharing initiative to help facilitate dialogue and exchange on education across the Commonwealth. Secretary-General Karmalesh Sharma labelled it a “Virtual one-stop shop knowledge service for education professionals and planners”.
The Hub website www.thecommonwealth-educationhub.net will be home to a wealth of education resources, best practice examples, and country data. Whilst the Community of Practice is an email based discussion group providing a forum for the Commonwealth education community to debate issues of relevance, ask questions, or share knowledge.
Commonwealth Deputy Secretary-General Deodat Maharaj, speaking at the launch of the Hub at the 19th Conference of Commonwealth Education Ministers in the Bahamas, said: “The Hub is not only a way to promote knowledge-sharing among policy-makers and practitioners, but also acts as a ‘network of networks’ that can create an enabling context for solutions and best practices to be adopted for scale across the Commonwealth.”
