Migrant workers to get NVQ skills

The government will recognize skills of returning migrant workers in the future so that their skills could be used effectively, Tertiary and Vocational Education Commission Information Systems Director Janaka Jayalath said. He said migrant workers will be offered National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) level one before migration.

Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment to introduce this module and assessment system at their training centres.

He said that there is a significant increase in the number of migrant workers worldwide but there is a slow progress in recognizing the skills of returning migrant workers in Sri Lanka, he said at a workshop on “Skills recognition for migrant workers,” organized by the ILO in Colombo yesterday.

Jayalath said there will be new services for departing and returning migrant workers through a new or an existing national agency to support labour market reintegration with full recognition of their new skills.

Accordingly evidences for recognition of skills of returning migrants will include written statements attesting work experience and skills development signed by supervisors and employers, performance appraisal documents, information on any leadership and supervisory and soft skills developmental roles held by the migrant worker.

The drafted National Action Plan for skills recognition of migrant workers was discussed at the workshop with the participation of members of the region identifying opportunities for enhanced cooperation in the region for skills recognition of migrant workers.

ILO Country Director Donglin Li said the issue of skills recognition and qualifications reform has been a major theme of international debates on education and training strategy and developing a system that is more flexible ,accessible and transparent yet without undermining its quality and credibility is a challenge.

He believed that it is important to promote the establishment of formal structures for tripartite consultations on migration issues and the coordination of stakeholder at both national and regional levels.
