In the modern era, in developing countries like Sri Lanka, education prioritizes employment. The government is struggling to give state employment opportunities to the graduates who lack field experience, industrial interest, employment-oriented learning, and interest in private sector employment. The SLQF gives importance to the application and practical side of theories and education in the degree programs. Therefore, it is indispensable to incorporate this activity to make the graduates marketable and employable. This activity will instill a positive mindset towards private sector employment.
