This one-month-long residential programme, implemented under five phases absorbs 10,000 graduates for each phase at a time and expects to cover all 50,000 graduates within five months.

It began on Monday (14) at 51 island-wide Army Centers, including, Security Force HQs, Regimental HQs and Training Schools.

The graduate orientation project is implemented, together with the Army Directorate of Training in order to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes of those recruited graduates to ensure their effective contribution to nation-building as a trained, fully-fledged and energetic workforce.

The project is closely monitored by the Ministry of Defence and coordinated and supervised at all seven Security Force HQs level.

Each phase through this methodology trains 10,000 graduates and achieves the full potential of the public sector simultaneously, covering subjects such as ‘Leadership and Team-Building Training’, ‘Management Training’, ‘Training in Private and State sector Establishments’, ‘Project work and Field studies’, ‘Cohesiveness and Resilience,’ etc, critical in developing an efficient public sector employee while mitigating poor productivity.
