SLITHM @ Jaffna

SLITHM Jaffna Training Center was established in October 2017. The main aim of establishing this training center is to counter the manpower shortage of trained tourism and hospitality industry personnel in the northern region. This move has enabled youth in the northern region to take up lucrative jobs in the hospitality industry. A number of hotels and resorts have opened up in the northern region of Sri Lanka and the skilled manpower shortage will be addressed by the opening of this facility.

Future plans are to conduct courses in hotel front office, food and beverage, professional cookery, hotel housekeeping, pastry and bakery, National Tourist Guide courses and language courses.

SLITHM Jaffna at 3rd Cross Street, Jaffna, has already commenced academic operations with a Hospitality Apprenticeship Course (Food and Beverage, Housekeeping and Front Office) aimed at attracting unemployed youth to the tourism industry. The present temporary facility will make way for a fully-fledged hotel school that is to open in January 2018.
