Surado Campus of Business Management, one of Sri Lanka’s foremost privately led vocational training institutions for foreign employment is driving a wave of new global job opportunities for Sri Lankans based on the worldwide caregiving market boom. The campus, completing 06 years in operation as a leading provider of foreign employment opportunities based on a strong educational foundation and internationally accepted qualifications, has introduced caregiving to their curriculum, ensuring that Sri Lankans will be professionally qualified to penetrate into the highly promising and demanding global caregiver market.
Caregiving entails assisting another person who is ill, disabled, or needs help with daily activities, and has thus far been a somewhat understated profession among Sri Lankans. Those looking to earn on foreign soil are still venturing into stereotypical job roles as domestic maids / workers under harsh conditions due to the lack of awareness of newer, better opportunities such as caregiving,whichhas shown far greater potential for rapid income generation and less physical and emotional trauma.
“Having personally trained and qualified as a caregiver while I read for my Masters in Australia, I came to respect and recommend this highly rewarding job role,” stated Mr.RachithaBuddika, Chief Executive Officer of the Surado Campus of Business Management. “It requires you to pay attention to the physical, emotional, social and psychological needs of another human being, and you are responsible for them. So it’s not something you can learn on the go, but something that you need to study and understand before putting it to practice. This is why we are offering caregiving as a subject at our campus, and I hope that Sri Lankans will understand the potential of caregiving and invest their time and effort in qualifying for a future-ready job role.”
It is the perfect investment not only by foreign and local job seekers, but also young adults flying overseas on student visa with onlypart time job opportunities.
It is also a highly beneficial, practical and even life-saving course for those who wish to take care of ailing family members right here at home in Sri Lanka.
With the global caregiving market poised to grow manifold within the next few years, it’s not only home healthcare jobs that are open opportunities for job creation and income generation.
There are plenty more job openings being created across multiple avenues that are related to the ageing population and caregiving, such as technology-based assistance, special catering, etc.
The only Campus in Sri Lanka providing foreign placement for caregivers, Surado Campus of Business Management offers a specialized 6-month Diploma in Healthcare inclusive of practical first aid courses, ultramodern physical therapy treatment initiations and specialized lectures by an eminent panel of lecturers. Surado is also the only ISO 9001:2008 and SLS IWA2 2007 quality certified vocational training institution in Sri Lanka offering the UK Approval for their caregiver program. The Campus, registered under the Tertiary and Vocational Education Commission of Sri Lanka is also a City & Guilds approved center for vocational training, and is also endorsed by the Sri Lankan Bureau of Foreign Employment.
