The SABERͲWfD scores, summarized on the cover of the report, show that the Sri Lankan WfD system is at the Established level along one of the three functional dimensions—Strategic Framework—and at the Emerging level along the other two dimensions: System Oversight and Service Delivery. The analysis highlights a strong commitment from the government in setting a strategic direction; however, the implementation of the strategy is lagging behind. In terms of system oversight, the system needsto be strengthened to ensure better efficiency and equity in the funding of public institutions. Moreover, although a major effort has been made in setting up the competency standards and the National Vocational Qualifications (NVQ) framework, challenges remain in their implementation and in ensuring the market relevance of those standards and qualifications. Finally, there is much room for improvement in service delivery. Accountability for training delivery needs to be strengthened, the relevance of public training programs needs to be improved, and both the diversity and excellence of training provision need to be increased through private sector participation.
