Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe has observed that the island nation needs trained teachers to develop education in the right direction and towards the right goal.

He was addressing a ceremony to award the National Diploma in Education certificates to 3,000 new teachers held at the Temple Trees recently. Education Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam was also present.

He added that the present government during the past four years has been able to work for the betterment of the education sector and he was happy at being able to enhance the prevailing education system. There are around 80,000 Diploma holders serving as teachers in schools and this number is expected to increase to 90,000 during the year. The number of untrained teachers was about 25,000 and all untrained teachers could be trained within the next three to four years if this programme is continued.

“Empowering the country’s human resource with new technology and the knowledge will further improve the economy. Therefore, we have decided to train teachers and award them with Diplomas. I have asked the Education Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam to increase the number of Colleges of Education in the country. Teachers will also be given a foreign language training such as English, Chinese and Japanese.”
