I’m Mr. K. Ketheeswaran,  for my primary education I attended T/Paddithidal Maha Viddiyalayam, Muthur Trincomalee, and for secondary education I attended T/St. Francis Xavier Maha Viddiyalayam, Trincomalee.  After the completion of the G.C.E O/L examination, I continued my GCE Advanced Level Examination at K/AK/Sri Ramakrishna National College.

I was fortunate to enter the Eastern University of Sri Lanka in the year 2004 and I graduated with a first-class in  Bachelor of Education Honours Degree. I was given an opportunity to serve my native university as a Temporary Lecturer from 2011 to 2013. I started work as a permanent academic at the Open University of Sri Lanka (OUSL) in 2013.
