University College for Wayamba youth
The Ministry of Youth Affairs and Skills Development has decided to
construct a University College at the Kuliyapitiya to offer vocational
training diploma courses for G.C.E. (A/L) level qualified job seekers.
The young unemployed girls and boys who would pass out from this
University College can get lucrative job opportunities locally and
internationally in government and private sector institutions.
Unemployed youth from Kurunegala and Puttalam Districts can follow
vocational training courses here to become qualified professionals. They
can enter the University of Technology to obtain degrees after following
diploma courses at this University College.
About 3,000 youths can follow vocational training diploma courses at
this university college when it commences its study courses within next
two years, said the NWP-PC Chief Minister Dayasiri Jayasekara, at a
conference of members of Youth Clubs of the Kurunegala District held
recently at the Panduwasnuwara Community Centre.
