The District Vocational Training Centre of the Vocational Training Authority (VTA) located at Mankulam Road in Mullaitivu town conducts the following courses:
- Aluminum Fabricator
- Three Wheeler Mechanic
- Computer Hardware Technician
- Information and Communication Technology Technician
The VTA Training Centre was provided with a building to be used as an automobile workshop and fitted with all modern equipment relevant to the field. A building was constructed as a cafeteria for trainees at the centre. An existing building on the premises was also refurbished so that a bakery training course could be conducted there as well as a business outlet created for bakery products to be sold to the public in order for trainees to receive hands on experience in both bakery production as well as entrepreneurship development.
The VTN Project also trained the trainers at the Centre on pedagogical methods for better teaching practice. The Centre is a place of vital importance for youth in the area to get a skills-based training particularly since this district is the most vulnerable in the Northern Province in the spheres of livelihood, education and transportation facilities. Trainees who achieve NVQ Levels 3 and 4 can obtain further skills training up to NVQ Level 6 at the SLGTI in Kilinochchi.
