Oct 17, Colombo: Sri Lanka Ministry of Higher Education announced that the leadership training for the new students entering the universities will commence on November 15.
The Ministry has planned to seek the advice of the Attorney General in this regard due to the legal judgments pertaining to the z-score issue and the number of student admissions.
The leadership training handled by the military will be provided in three sessions for three batches of 9,000 students each at 28 Army and police camps.
The program, which aims to provide leadership training and enhance positive attitude in students, will cover subjects of Sri Lanka's future vision and global changes, the processing of a strategic living plan and reaching the long term objectives, physical training, first aid, leadership qualities and common law.
A spokesman of the Ministry of Higher Education said that the leadership training is carried out in three stages due to the increase of student admissions under a Supreme Court order.
The admission of students to the universities of Sri Lanka this year was delayed due to the z-score crisis and the strikes by the university teachers.
