Despite the number of IT graduates, which joins the local job market every year, Sri Lankan tech companies, suffer from a dearth of IT skills to meet the rising demand from their global clients.
While a number of public and private universities in Sri Lanka produce a large number of IT, computer science and computer engineering graduates every year, a large number of youth with potential IT skills fails to make it to these universities each year.
For them, BCS Higher Education Qualification is an ideal way to gain a prestigious British degree with a pathway to charted status. Its three tiered flexible study path allows the students follow the BCS certificate, diploma and professional graduate diploma in a manner which fits their time and budget limitations, helping them plot their own unique career path in IT. Awarded by the Charted Institute of IT- UK, which promotes collaboration between experts from industry, academia and business to promote new thinking, knowledge sharing and education, BCS qualifications are recognised across the world, giving your IT qualifications a global recognition.
In BCS, its members find a single knowledge sharing community for every one with an interest in IT and computer studies. The organisations links computer science research academics with developers working in research and development seeking solutions to real world problems.
