During the project coordinator's visit to Sri Lanka, GIZ has reconfirmed they have the intention to resume the Teaching English in Sri Lanka project activities. Ownig to the launch of GIZ's new project in Sri Lanka and a number of administrative changes related to this restructuring, negotiations of a new contract with JGU can only start after the opening of GIZ's new project. The Teaching English in Sri Lanka project will be one component of this new GIZ project, which will again be related to the vocational training sector in Sri Lanka.

Consequently, we hope to send the next group of JGU students to Sri Lanka by October 2019.

If you're interested in taking part, please stay tuned!

Don't hesitate to contact the project coordinator in case you have any questions!

The Vocational Training in the North and East of Sri Lanka Project (VTN), which has been implemented by GIZ, will come to a close by the end of this year. This means that the collaboration between GIZ and JGU will have to pause from October 2018 till at least April 2019. Owing to these administrative changes, there cannot be a new intake of students for October 2018.

If you are interested in joining the ‘Teaching English in Sri Lanka Project’ in the future, please stay tuned!

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact the project coordinator!



Currently, two students from the University of Mainz are working at the SLGTI in Kilinochchi. On weekends they are ususally busy travelling or attending social events such as their colleague's weddings.
