The Ministry of Skills Development has initiated a programme to provide vocational training to school children through an online method.
Students will be able to obtain the NVQ Level Certificate upon completing several steps of the online courses.
State Minister Seetha Arambepola addressing a media briefing held at the Government Information Department said the course will be conducted over a period of six to eight months through TV channels, YouTube or Facebook.
The State Minister said popular courses will be selected for students to follow, adding that they will subsequently be required to face a written examination.
State Minister Arambepola claimed those who pass the exam will be attached to a vocational institute for training.
