AAP celebrates third anniversary

The Academy for Administrative Professionals (AAP) celebrated its third year with a series of events. An Awards Nite was held at the Taj Samudra Hotel recently followed by the Induction of the new members which coincided with the International Administrative Professionals Week celebrations. Chairman, Hatton National Bank, Rienzie Wijetilleke, was the Chief Guest.

Fifty students who had completed their studies received certificates and those who excelled in studies received their awards.

Sixty new members were inducted and the Contributor of the Year award Winners were Mrs. Shyamalee Jayasekera of Ceylinco Investment and Reality Ltd., under the General Member Category and Mrs. Shireen Mohideen of the UAE Embassy on the Management staff category.

Executive Director of the AAP Ms Sunethra Jayaratne said that having moved to India in their second year and added that within a short span of another year had been successful in moving over to Dubai, the details of which have been finalised, followed by a Residential seminar in Dubai - planned for early June, for members only.

The AAP has also achieved excellent ratings in all its programs so far and the AAP has a greater task ahead of bettering the excellence to be super fantastic, she said.

The Chief Guest reiterated the importance of Administrative Profession which carries greater responsibilities at present. A CEO heavily depends on his Executive Assistant at a time with the organisational structure being on par, with the management and the staff.

Achieving the Recognised Training Centre status from the London Chamber of Commerce (UK), is evidence of the standard and quality maintained by the AAP in training and Skills Development Programs.

This would be an opportunity for the corporate sector to refer their employees who needs proper training, specially in the Secretarial field.

Another noteworthy feature is AAP’s ability to secure employment for its students who successfully complete their courses.

Wijetilleke called upon the AAP to make every endeavour to take the Secretarial Profession to the suburbs to open avenues of employment to youngsters.
