The government s development vision up to 2020, Mahinda Chintana, and the National Human Resource Development and Employment Policy (2012) stress the importance of, and the government s commitment to TVET sector expansion and improvement. To operationalize such commitment, the Skills Sector Development Program (SSDP) has been developed, coordinated by the National Planning Department of MOFP in 2013. The Plan aims to improve (i) policies, systems, and structures; (ii) quality; (iii) relevance; (iii) access; and (iv) recognition of vocational education. ADB s TVET Sector Development Program will focus on key results areas of the government s SSDP, using disbursement-linked indicators and build the government s capacity to transform and align its TVET system to meet the skills needs of industry. The program is fully aligned with ADB s Country Partnership Strategy 2012-2016 and is included in the Sri Lanka COBP for 2013-2015.
