Leadership training for second batch starts today

The 'Leadership Training and Positive Attitude Development Programme' for undergraduates is in progress, equipping future leaders with leadership qualities and a positive attitude, Higher Education Minister S B Dissanayake said.

Training for the second intake of the 'Leadership Training and Positive Attitude Development Programme' for new university entrants will commence today at 22 training centres. The first intake was on December 27.

Training for the second batch will continue till February 1. The training for the third batch will be held from February 12 to 28. All arrangements have been finalised to commence the second phase of the programme. Higher Education Ministry Additional Secretary P G Jayasinghe said 7,860 students, who passed the Advanced Level examination in 2011 have been selected for the second batch.

The names of the selected students have already been published on the website www.leardership.mohe.gov.lk and they have been informed by post. However, if a student whose name is appeared on the website can enroll to the second batch even if that student has not received a calling letter. Such students are advised to bring a copy of the web page on which their names are appeared when calling over at the relevant training centre.
