The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce (CCC) being the premier business chamber in Sri Lanka, is an Institution that works closely with a wide cross section of industries, businesses and business communities in the country. One of its main objectives is to respond to national needs in the promotion of business.

In current times it has become evident that the gap between employer expectations and employee readiness has increased significantly. The lack of skilled workforce for corporates surfaced as a problematic issue for several years. As a result, the human resource available in the country is not fully exploited. This has a negative impact on both employers and employees.

This situation drives the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce to intervene and bridge the gap, by identifying potential courses to suite the job market demands, developing suitable curriculums accordingly and conduct relevant and high impact courses. To execute this exercise the CCC embarks on “Chamber Academy”, an institute that provides “Work Based Training Programmes”. It is expected that Chamber member companies and other private sector organisations can benefit through this initiative by nominating their employees for training programmes to uplift the skillsets, while school leavers and job seekers too can enroll for these programmes for better career prospects.

The Chamber Academy commenced its services from the 12th July 2018. For more information please contact the Chamber Academy on 011-558-8880 or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
