Deputy Minister of Education in charge of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET), Mrs. Barbara Asher Ayisi has re-echoed government’s resolve to make Technical and Vocational Training attractive to the youth.
She said Technical and Vocational Educational remains one of the topmost priorities of the President and thus has drawn a strategic roadmap that will give attention to its development and sustainability.
President Nana Akufo-Addo earlier this year said the goal of his government is to make Ghana a world-renowned destination for skills development, and a leading country in technical and vocational education training in Africa.
According to President Akufo-Addo, it is important to emphasize the essence of TVET, and redeem the misconception that technical and vocational education is inferior, and patronized only by less-endowed students.
In an exclusive interview with the deputy minister who is also the Member of Parliament for the Cape Coast North Constituency, she said she has always had the urge to invest into TVET and as her duty, she is poised to give the sector a facelift to actualize the dreams of the NPP government.
She indicated plans are far advanced to overhaul all NVTI’s in the country to give them a status that befits international standards. To this end, she said government has aligned and brought all public TVET institutions in the country under the direct supervision of the Ministry of Education to streamline their curricula, and improve the coordination of their training. This she explained will help make the area attractive for people to invest.
