The Sri Lanka Vocational Training Authority (VTA) has launched a promotion themed ‘Join in to cross over’ to attract more youth to its vocational training programmes which are a gateway to lucrative employment opportunities.

The Sri Lanka Vocational Training Authority said the publicity programme was launched because training centres equipped with latest technology alone were insufficient to draw youth to training programmes which were esssnetial for jobs with high remuneration.

The statement added that the Authority has already established strategies to update the knowledge, talents and attitudes of trainees by infusing private sector technology and management techniques into the training programmes through a public–private partnership.

Although there was a heavy demand for trained employees in the construction, tourism and garment sectors, the country had failed to supply this demand in full so far.

The Authority possessed eight national vocational training centres, 22 district vocational training centres and 187 other training centres, making for a full complement of 217 training centres.
