Project management is one of the fastest growing professions in the world today. Most of the activities that we undertake in our organizations are projects. It is because of this our youth should gain basic skills in project management during early stages of their careers. If you learn how to plan and execute a project successfully that will definitely leverage your career advancement when you start working in the future.

Some of the projects organized by our youth at schools or community are sports meets, annual prize givings, science day, field trips, fund raising campaigns, New Year festivals, Christmas day celebrations etc. When you enter the world of work as a young employee you will have to undertake projects like organizing product launches, promotional campaigns, anniversary celebrations, organizing training programmes, seminars, conferences, trade shows, exhibitions, sports events, new year festivals etc. When you become a senior employee you will handle more complex and large projects like, new product development, introducing new technology, introducing quality management systems, expansion of the production facilities, building air ports, bridges, dams etc. If you are equipped with right PM tools and techniques only you will be able to complete such tasks successfully.

The Career Planning and Development for school leavers and youth

It is targeted at school leavers and youth who wish to enhance their skills in career planning and development. This programme imparts knowledge and skills required to plan your career, decide what professional career to pursue, enhance your personality and develop yourself continuously. The programme also covers many aspects of personal development techniques. Personal development refers to activities that improve self-knowledge and identity, develop talents and potential, build human capital and employability, enhance quality of life and contribute to the realization of dreams and aspirations.

In addition to your technical qualification on a particular profession you need a range of soft skills to perform your job effectively and produce results. Just because you have high grading at your O/L, A/L, Degree or professional qualification, there is no guarantee that you will achieve higher heights in life. For example look at the profiles of CEOs, Directors, General Mangers and Senior Managers of leading companies in Sri Lanka, how many of them have 8-Ds,4-As or Degree with a first class? Very rarely. They do have some professional qualifications. But what helped them mainly to achieve these positions?

It is their soft skills like, communication, interpersonal, leadership, team work, creativity, problem solving and decision making skills that have helped them to achieve these positions. Now you realize the importance of these skills for your career advancement. This programme aims to help you in career planning and learning these skills will help you to reach higher heights in life.
