Construction of German Training Institute in Kilinochchi

Germany funds construction of vocational Training Institute in Kilinochchi

German Ambassador Dr. Juergen Morhard recently visited the site of the Sri Lankan-German Training Institute (SLGTI), a landmark project initiated by German development cooperation agency GIZ in 2012, as part of its Vocational Training in the North (VTN) Project.  SLGTI will be a national level vocational training institute in Kilinochchi. The institute functions under the purview of the National Apprentice and Industrial Training Authority (NAITA), and offers training in identified technical trades at National Vocational Qualification levels 4, 5 and 6. SLGTI will provide war-affected youth and communities in the North an opportunity to enhance their skills according to the requirements of the current labour market. Ambassador Morhard was pleased by the progress made in the construction of the facility, and expressed confidence that the project was on track for completion by May 2016.
