The partnership will support the development of CINEC’s teaching staff, to ensure consistent high quality training and resources, and ensure job ready graduates with the skills required to support the local economy in Sri Lanka.  This partnership was formed due to the assistance and support of Melbourne based agent Mr. Bhanuka Wanasinghe, who will continue to play a key role in delivering key outcomes
