Transforming Sri Lanka in to a Smart Nation

In this context, it is important to develop a talent group with in par with the changing technology and industry needs.
To solve this issue, State Ministry of Skills Development, Vocational Education, Research and innovation has joined hands with the leading ICT Industry Associations led by ICT Industry Skills Council (ICTISC) to undertake this task by offering Industry demand training programs to the Sri Lankan youth.
Hence, a focused fast track program is needed to address the above issue. Industry collaborative approach is required to reduce the competency gaps in the present training programs and also introduce new appropriate courses.
