The National IT-BPM workforce survey 2019, conducted by the ICT Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA), reveals that the IT-BPM workforce’s annual shortage is 12,140. The local universities produce only 9,076 graduates a year, and the annual demand stands at 21,216. This supply-demand gap is shown to keep growing with the industry’s expansion and has become a significant bottleneck impacting the growth of the sector.
Although there are tens of thousands of students learning ICT related subjects and vocational and other diploma courses, their employability in the software export industry is low. Unemployability is mainly due to the outdated and non-relevant curriculums and poor quality education standards.
There are some different ICT diploma curriculums in-use by public and private educational institutes. As per SLASSCOM’s observation, most of these are outdated and do not reflect the skills required by the industry. This curriculum will be kept up-to-date by the industry and freely available for any institute to use as guidance to influence their curriculums.
This curriculum is not a comprehensive lesson plan to cover all the skills in-use in the industry. Instead, it is a limited scope good enough for a student to find an entry-level job opportunity as a developer.
In developing this, we have adapted some structural elements of TRACE re:start curriculum, but the content of the lessons are developed independently by contributors from the industry.
This curriculum is built based on the following ground principles. If you wish to become a contributor, it is essential to understand and adhere to these principles.
