Developing Careers: Providing New Opportunities ( 2004)

SLT continued its career development programme in collaboration with four professional bodies to guide young adults, school leavers and higher grade school students on their future career paths.

In a bid to build career awareness among the young population of Jaffna, SLT supported a seminar on the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) professional qualification. This was the ninth of a series of programmes aimed at creating an awareness of different careers among students. The objective was to expose young people to the potential that accountancy, marketing, personal management and administration hold as careers. More than 500 students from six schools in the Jaffna district participated.

In collaboration with Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), Institute of Personnel Management (IPM) & Institute of Chartered Secretaries & Administrators (ICSA) SLT organised a career development seminar "To be number one" at the BMICH. This programme was aimed to create an awareness among professional education and career development. SLT will extend this programme islandwide to enable students from all parts of the country who complete their school education to choose a profession.

SLT fully supported the Annual Conference of the e-Club of the University of Moratuwa. The e-Club is the Public Relations arm of the Electronics Department of the University. SLT understands the necessity of bridging the gap between the industry and the academic arena. The e-Club's effort is to showcase their capabilities to their future employers and obtain the feedback from them in order to improve and restructure their academic activities. In this light we give our helping hand to young and future engineering professionals.

In 2003 SLT supported mini Comfest competitions around the country and a National Commerce Festival organised by The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). These events include "Wiz Kid 2003" - a do you know contest, "Student Bulletin 2003" - a competition involving team from each school compiling a Commerce magazine on an impromptu basis, "Ad Act" - where a group of students from each school act out an advertisement. The winners would be those who get the message across best and "Business Talk" - a three minute speech contest on topics of current interest.

Individuals were awarded prizes while the best school and runner-up were chosen on the basis of aggregate points. There were 15 leading schools participating in this competition from Kandy, Galle, Negombo & Colombo.
