Our Mission

Improving knowledge, professional competencies and good attitudes among people and social groups through open and distance learning



Aim of the SLF e Gate The SLF e-Gate will be a new dimension in public and private sector learning, as it accompanies a new learning experience apart from the conventional classroom teaching which takes off a substantial time away from office and private life. Information technology is a very essential tool that directly results in high efficiency irrespective of whether it is product or service sector due to speedy processing and communication capabilities it possesses. Lack of IT infrastructure and investment facilities aggravates the technophobic attitudes of the employees, barring them from accessing to highly important skills and knowledge.

The collaborative effort initiated by the Sri Lanka Foundation Institute aims to span the gap between future and present for the public or private sector employees or any other workforce by equipping them with hardware and software facilities that will give them the apposite skills to knowledge to improve efficiency at their workplaces and in personal life though the training programmes offered online. As the first step SLF e Gate will offer two National Diploma Programmes on Information Technology & Human Resource Management.

The Strategy

Potential participants will be enrolled in TVEC/SLQF approved National Diploma in Information Technology & National Diploma in Human Resource Management for which they will join online using a flexible portable device (tablet-laptop) that will be provided to them as a part of the online training programme. Teaching material, assignments and classroom sessions will be made compulsory to each participant through a tutor who will monitor and assess the participant’s online performances throughout the course. There will be a facilitator institute in every region for the participants to get further guidance. At the end of the course the participants will sit for a final classroom examination. Those who will successfully complete the requirements of all the modules of the course will be awarded a recognised certificate.
