In view of the fact that this may be the last opportunity provided to follow courses in the Sinhala medium, all untrained teachers are expected to apply. If the number of applicants in the Sinhala medium is found to be too small, it is expected to conduct all the courses in a Teachers’ College decided by the Secretary, Education. Therefore please do not ask for a Teachers’ College closer to your place of residence.

If there is no residential facility or if there is no adequate accommodation, student teachers can be provided with accommodation closer to the Institution.
