* Leadership program for Sri Lankan university entrants fails to make a noticeable difference in students
Tue, Feb 4, 2014, 08:01 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 04, Colombo: University lecturers in Sri Lanka say that there has not been a marked difference in students after participating in the leadership training programme initiated by the government.

Former President of the Federation of University Teachers' Association (FUTA), Dr. Nirmal Ranjith Dewasiri has told a news conference that the leadership training programme is carried out without a proper vision or principle.

The three-week program conducted at military camps is designed to provide leadership training and enhance positive attitude in new university entrants.

The program covers 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.

Dr. Dewasiri said that students have shown interest in participating in the programme with the intention of having fun but the programme has had a detrimental cost resulting in the death of a student.

He was referring to a student who died earlier this month after falling ill during the leadership training programme.

According to Dr. Dewasiri, teachers and students should take a stand on boycotting the leadership training programme since it has not served any purpose.
