The Northern Sector Hosts Workshop For TVET Strategic Plan Development (A/R)

As part of the Development of Skills for Industry Project (DSIP), government is sponsoring the development of a comprehensive costed Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Strategic Plan.


Presently, the Council for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (COTVET), which is implementing DSIP and developing the TVET Strategic Plan, is seeking inputs from stakeholders nationwide into the Draft Strategic Plan which was developed in conjunction with international consultants.


Speaking at the opening of a stakeholders’ validation workshop, organized by COTVET for the northern sector at Kumasi last Thursday, on the National TVET Strategic Plan, Mr Sebastian Deh, Executive Director of COTVET, noted that one of the key challenges TVET had faced in Ghana had been the lack of a blueprint to guide successive governments and Development Partners in their investments into the TVET sector.


Mr Deh, therefore, described the development of a National TVET Strategic Plan as a giant step by the Government of Ghana to provide a facelift for TVET in Ghana and urged participants to consider the workshop as an important national assignment and make contributions that would enrich the quality and relevance of the Plan.


The northern sector of Ghana comprises the Ashanti, Brong Ahafo and the three northern regions.


The workshop further brainstormed on the major thematic areas of the proposed strategy and elicited valuable inputs from the technocrats on issues relating to the goals and objectives of the proposed Strategic Plan.


It also discussed management, institutional governance and human resource issues that are to be incorporated into the strategic plan.
