Leveraging Singer’s heritage built over 164 years and its unmatched power as the No.1 brand for 11 consecutive years, Singer embarked on the journey of empowering Sri Lankan youth through its latest educational venture, Singer Vocational Academy. Having its retail locations covering the entire island with well over 400 outlets, Singer has vast knowledge and experience about the Sri Lankan communities. It is through this experience that Singer launched its vocational training arm to enhance the potential of the youth population, enabling them to improve their living standards through quality and affordable education, whilst equipping Sri Lanka to gain forward momentum through a highly skilled workforce.
The vocational academy at present follows a simple yet results oriented model in its operation. All vocational programs conducted are based upon subject areas that Singer thrives on as a corporate. This has enabled the vocational academies to provide, productive hands-on experience to all its students. All academies have the eligibility to conduct accredited programs under NVQ and City & Guilds, enabling the students to follow the courses in accordance with their aspirations. The most highlighted fact of Singer Vocational Academy is the opportunity provided to its students to ‘study and work’ at the same time, enabling the students to be armed with knowledge to succeed in life without making financials hinder the process.
