SL faces big skilling challenge; mainly due to need for higher-quality education: Rohde

German Ambassador to Sri Lanka Jörn Rohde yesterday highlighted the fact that Sri Lanka has a big skilling challenge, mainly due to the need for higher-quality education and that the trade has to be more attractive in order to achieve success.
He stated the above at ‘Lessons from Germany’s Dual Vocational Training System’, a discussion forum held on 14 February at the BMICH. The event was organised by the International Chamber of Commerce Sri Lanka (ICCSL) together with the National Human Resource Development Council (NHRDC), with the aim of creating insights on Germany’s vocational education, which is recognised for its combination of training embedded in a real-life work environment.
Ambassador Rohde said: “Although it says ‘Germany’s dual vocational training system: a model for other countries’, I would add a question mark on to it, because it is always difficult to fully transfer one system into another. While it is important to provide the proper skills for students, it is even more important to educate teachers as well.”
