Skills development and capacity building are vital in achieving the SLASSCOM Vision 2022 of USD 5 billion in revenue, 200,000 jobs, and 1000 startups.
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 sector’s growth.
Although there are tens of thousands of students learning ICT related subjects at various courses, their employability in the software export industry is notably low. Unemployability is mainly due to the non-relevant curriculums and low quality teaching methods.
As per the industry observations, most of the ICT related curriculums in use are outdated and do not reflect the skills required by the industry. SLASSCOM expects to keep this curriculum up-to-date through volunteers and keep freely available for any institute to use as guidance for their curriculums.
Please note that this curriculum is not a comprehensive lesson plan to cover all the skills required. Instead, it is a limited scoped, minimal content for a student to find an entry-level job opportunity. The content of the modules, topics, and lessons are developed independently by different contributors from the industry.
