The VTA Training Centre in Kantale in the Trincomalee district is supported by the GIZ VTN Project which has improved its facilities in order to provide better training for students. The Centre has been fitted with modern equipment necessary for each technical trade and the trainers have been trained in both technical and pedagogical methods of teaching. The trainees have also been given a working knowledge of the English language and their soft skills have been developed in order to make them competent candidates in the job market. The central location of the Centre enables it to provide relevant skills based training to the urban youth of the area.
The following courses are available at the Centre:
- Information and Communication Technology Technician
- Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Mechanic
Trainees seeking further training up to NVQ Level 6 can do so at the SLGTI in Kilinochchi.
