The recruits to State and private Institutions for Vocational Training are to be increased 150,000 annually.
The Tertiary Education Commission has decided to moot this programme from next year. This has surfaced during a discussion on the Sabaragamuwa Province Vocational Training Plan.
It was chaired by Sabragamuwa Chief Minister Mahipala Herath. The number of State and Private Sector Vocational Training Institutions registered under the Tertiary Education Commission is 1800. About 100 thousand undergo training in these institutions annually.
