The Skills for Inclusive Growth (S4IG) is an initiative of the Australian Government in collaboration with the Ministry of Science, Technology, Research, Skills Development and Vocational Training and Kandyan Heritage (Sri Lanka).
The S4IG Program has partnered with the Federation of Chamber of Commerce in Sri Lanka (FCCISL) to improve the skills of women, men, and persons with disabilities in the tourism and hospitality industry in Ampara, Batticaloa, Polonnaruwa and Trincomalee to strengthen the performance of enterprises, improve their quality of services, generating employment and increasing incomes.
The Work Place Based Basic Skills Program in Tourism and Hospitality has been designed to enable workplaces to deliver industry-recognized training on the job and assess and track the skills of employees as they achieve required industry competency standards. This workplace training is an initiative of the S4IG Program and FCCISL. This approach is supporting employers to deliver quality vocational training and strengthen the quality and relevance of the skills ecosystem in Sri Lanka.
