Third Space Global opens new re­gional head­quar­ters at Orion City

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - ICT -

Third Space Global, a Uk-based com­pany, opened its new re­gional head­quar­ters at Orion City re­cently to en­hance the on­line learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for school chil­dren by re­cruit­ing young and in­tel­li­gent Sri Lankans, who are re­quired to un­dergo an in­ten­sive train­ing pro­gramme on the new­est teach­ing tech­niques.

Hav­ing be­gun op­er­a­tions in Septem­ber 2015, the com­pany is headed by Bri­tish­born Sri Lankan, Third Space Global CEO Roshan Ni­laweera. Third Space Learn­ing, the brain­child of Founder/ CEO Tom Hooper, is the par­ent com­pany of Third Space Global. Ni­laweera was joined by Hooper to of­fi­cially open the new re­gional head­quar­ters for Third Space Global.

“We take our re­spon­si­bil­ity of be­ing here in Sri Lanka very se­ri­ously. Over the next 18 to 24 months we will be on track to in­crease our ex­port rev­enue, but also we feel that there is a duty for all com­pa­nies to do their bit and this will be the ex­pan­sion of our CSR elearn­ing hubs pro­gramme, which we’ve been run­ning over the last six weeks, which I hope some of you will be able to learn a bit more in our show­case.

What we have been do­ing there is we have been invit­ing chil­dren to come into our of­fice to use the com­puter fa­cil­i­ties, to de­velop their in­de­pen­dent think­ing and learn­ing skills, so that they are not just a con­sumer of the In­ter­net, but they are lever­ag­ing the In­ter­net to im­prove them­selves,” stated Ni­laweera at the launch.

He fur­ther said, “The rest of the world is de­vel­op­ing in terms of ed­u­ca­tion prac­tices. We feel that there is an op­por­tu­nity here for us to make a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to sup­port that across the is­land.”

Af­ter the ses­sion, a show­case was hosted to give at­ten­dees the op­por­tu­nity to get first­hand ex­pe­ri­ence to see what the stu­dents of the UK ex­pe­ri­ence with the ses­sions, learn about some of the global ed­u­ca­tional de­vel­op­ments, un­der­stand ca­reer de­vel­op­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties and also to learn about some of the CSR pro­grammes un­der­way.

Third Space Global aims to build an in­ter­na­tion­ally recognised cen­tre of ex­cel­lence in on­line maths teach­ing and pupil de­vel­op­ment that would al­low them to de­velop the best prac­tices in train­ing and de­liv­ery.

Third Space Global is set to cre­ate a great work­ing en­vi­ron­ment and train­ing pro­gramme that would al­low re­cruit­ment of the best maths teach­ing tal­ent and de­velop them with in­ter­na­tional and lo­cal part­ners.
