Brandix with the Colombo International Nautical and Engineering College (CINEC) has launched the Brandix – CINEC Centre of Excellence, to train and inspire the group’s workforce. It will initially cater to the associates and supervisory grade employees, offering programmes covering technical and behavioural aspects as part of the curriculum at a later stage.

Located within the Malabe CINEC Campus, the Brandix – CINEC Centre of Excellence will facilitate joint training programmes and research for the apparel sector, following the recent signing of an agreement between the Brandix Group and CINEC, one of the largest non-state sector higher education institutions in Sri Lanka.

The signing of the agreement between Ishan Dantanarayana, chief people officer of the Brandix Group and Prof. Nalaka Jayakody, vice president of the CINEC campus in the presence of Capt. Ajith Peiris, chairman/ managing director of CINEC was followed by the induction of the first batch of trainees for the inaugural programme designed for the garment technician position.

"The focus of this initiative is to shape well-rounded individuals, following through on our commitment to create and foster inspired people. We want to unleash the technical and leadership potential of our people through a carefully curated, comprehensive learning and development process in collaboration with CINEC to create the next layer of talent to take the industry on an inspired journey," Dantanarayana said during the launch of BCCE.

The learning received at BCCE will be further enhanced with the support and guidance of the Vocational Technical Authority of Sri Lanka (VTA) to align the programme content with that of the nationally-accepted NVQ qualification equivalent to a Diploma, Dantanarayana additionally disclosed.

Notably, the Brandix group has also signed two Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) with the VTA; one to create an NVQ Level 5 equivalent qualification for garment technicians – the first of that level in the apparel industry, and the other to enable Brandix to identify and employ school leavers who have received a three-month training as industrial sewing machine operators at the VTA’s island-wide network of vocational training centres.
