As part of efforts to solve the unemployment situation in Ghana, the government will this year commence the implementation of the Ghana Jobs and Skills project.
This would be done through TVET, the president said when he presented his state of the nation address.
He said: ” This project seeks to expedite the development of competency-based training curricula on the National TVET Qualification Framework for one hundred (100) trades/professions from level one (1) (National Proficiency 1) to level five (5) (Higher National Diploma) as well as training some twenty-five thousand (25,000) beneficiaries and provide entrepreneurial support to about fifty thousand (50,000) individuals.
It will also seek to implement the Ghana Labour Market Information System, and upgrade of district public employment centres and services.”
He added: ”Mr. Speaker, I want to thank this august House for passing the Education Regulatory Bodies’ Act, 2020 (Act 1023). The passage of this Act has established the Commission for Technical Vocational Education and Training (CTVET) and the TVET Service. All these will help to streamline delivery of TVET, and avoid overlaps and duplication. We are also building thirty-two (32) TVET institutions across the country to augment existing infrastructure for effective TVET delivery.”
