Sri Lanka’s reputation as a source of skilled labor for industries around the world is based on high education standards and modern training techniques.

Liberalization of trade and the open economic policies pursued by Sri Lanka’s government have encouraged the country’s youth to learn and develop industrial skills.

Close monitoring of industry trends, as well as the use of modern technology and training methods, have ensured that Sri Lankan workers are equipped to face any challenge. Training programs also help prospective migrant workers develop positive work attitudes and behavior.

In addition, trainees are apprenticed to work with large industries to gain experience and master the high standards needed for placement in overseas countries.

Training in Sri Lanka covers a wide spectrum of skills and disciplines, producing engineers, accountants, architects, doctors, teachers, lawyers, bankers, hotel/restaurant personnel, receptionists, nurses, paramedics, computer operators, programmers and system analysts.

Other grades include machine operators, factory workers, welders, fitters, motor mechanics, heavy-duty vehicle drivers, dockyard workers, telecommunication technicians, seamen, laborers and domestic workers.

Sri Lankans are by nature intelligent, industrious and hardworking and have the ability to adapt easily to new job placements, qualities favored by overseas recruitment agencies facing a shortage of skilled workers.

Ancient palaces and irrigation schemes bear testimony to the ingenuity, resourcefulness and engineering skills of Sri Lanka’s population. These skills, passed down from generation to generation, have been honed through modern technology.

Sri Lanka has a 92 percent literacy rate, one of the highest in Asia, thanks to free education provided by the government since independence 70 years ago. The island has a large output of skilled and trained manpower with secondary (13 years) and tertiary-level education. A network of hundreds of A-grade schools and universities maintains a high standard of education.
