Enhancing learner support in Sierra Leone

workshop attendees

With COL’s assistance, Sierra Leone’s Freetown Polytechnic conducted a workshop to build academic and administrative  capacity to establish ODL learner support services. Dr Samba Moriba, Principal of Freetown Polytechnic, emphasised the significance of ODL learner support services in creating a nurturing, inclusive environment that helps learners overcome  barriers, develop necessary skills and succeed in their educational  pursuits, despite the physically distant and asynchronous nature of ODL programmes.

COL is committed to assisting such institutions in establishing support services that address ODL learners’ diverse needs. As a result of the workshop, Freetown Polytechnic developed a manual on ODL learner support services, covering key aspects.
