Colombo, 11 July, (Asiantribune.com):
The demand for higher and specialized qualifications by employers is increasing day by day and the educational institutions are now meeting that demand.
To ease the task of finding such opportunities to obtain these qualifications, Lanka Exhibition and Conference Services Pvt Ltd (LECS), held ‘ADYAPANA exhibition at Taj Samudra.
The series of ADYAPANA exhibitions bring together under one roof provides educational information to those who seek them. In Sri Lanka today those in search of such information are students who intend sitting the GCE Ordinary Level and Advance Level Examinations or those who have been successful in these examinations. Parents of these students too sometimes seek this information.
They can get correct information on the numerous fields of study such as business management, medicine, IT, architecture, finance, hotel management, aviation and maritime, tourism and hospitality, marketing and many more. They can also seek other pathways leading up to degrees, post graduation and certification programmes.
Knowing of the availability of information is advantageous but better still is to take advantage of an opportunity to make a close study and make a selection, with guidance, of the most appropriate which will ensure success. ADYAPANA offers the opportunity to make a close study and this opportunity is also provided at the Exhibition held at Weber Stadium, Batticaloa and it is held in association with the Batticaloa International Trade Fair.
Another of such Adyapana Exhibition will be held at the Sirimavo Bandaranaike Memorial exhibition centre, Colombo from the 21st to 23rd October 2011 and finally in Jaffna adjoining Durayaappa Stadium from 20th-22nd January 2012.
ECS Director, Imran Hassan said that these dates are considered very appropriate as they are the times when life shaping decisions are mostly made by students and their parents. ADYAPANA exhibition is there to offer its services to make correct decisions not only with regard to programmes of study, centers of study both local and foreign, approximate costs, visa requirements etc.
The importance of ADYAPANA Exhibitions to prospective students and their parents in this country does not need much elaboration when one considers that over 200,000 sit for the GCE Advance Level Examination each year. Of these it is known that about 150,000 are successful but only about 14,500 gain admissions to universities.
Of the remaining portion of students, a very large number are capable and have the ability to pursue higher studies. It is to these that ADYAPANA wishes to lend a helping hand creating a ‘Passport to your future’. It offers virtually scores of options to map out nationally and internationally available career pathways according to their capabilities, choices and financial and other resources. What is more is that all these are available under one roof with knowledgeable guidance during the most appropriate time of the year.
