Teacher training programs across the country

The Securities and Exchange Commission of Sri Lanka (SEC) in collaboration with the Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) hosted several impactful teacher training programmes for teachers of the established 100 Capital Market Clubs across the country.

These teacher training programmes were conducted in all three languages from March 13 to April 4, at teacher training centres across the nine provinces of country.

The ‘Capital Market Club’ programme is a strategic initiative designed in collaboration with the Presidential Secretariat and the Ministry of Education as well, aimed at fostering financial literacy throughout the education system of Sri Lanka. The teacher training programmes work as the initial step towards equipping the teachers overseeing the hundred capital market clubs with the crucial knowledge necessary to impart on students, so they may emerge as informed investors. The teachers were given a complete workshop, educating them on the regulatory environment, the stock market, the range of available capital market products as well as unit trusts.

By bridging the gap between theoretical instruction and practical experience, this project seeks to empower students with a profound understanding of investment dynamics and the workings of the capital market.

For this purpose, the SEC and CSE have created a carefully curated activity plan for the capital market club students, which the teachers were briefed on.

The event is scheduled to take place in June later this year and expected to attract teams representing each of the capital market clubs across the 100 schools they are established in.

Another activity expected to engage the club’s students is a ‘Virtual Stock Market Game’, where the winners of the activity will receive the opportunity to visit Singapore, as expressed by President Ranil Wickremesinghe.

The SEC and CSE are committed to ensuring that this initiative is a success, ensuring the country will benefit from a far larger pool of educated investors in the coming years.a
