Ghana’s current Education Minister, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh has disclosed the establishment of a Technical and Vocational Education Service (TVES) to refurbish Technical, Vocational Education and Training (TVET).
NAPO speaking at this year’s TVET Expo event organized by COTVET at the Movenpick Hotel in Accra said the new agency is to provide focused attention on Technical, Vocational Education & Training in the country.
The Manhyia South Member of Parliament said this forms part of His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo’s vision of a skilled country ready to provide the manpower needs for its industrialisation drive.
NAPO noted that the Pre-Tertiary Bill which will establish and allow for the operationalisation of the TVES is currently before the Ghanaian Parliament.
The Education Minister furthered that under the pending Bill, the about 400 pre-tertiary TVET institutions scattered under the 19 ministries will be aligned under the Ministry of Education for quality assurance.
The TVET Expo event was to highlight the Akufo-Addo government’s achievements in the TVET sector since 2017.
