Mrs Bernice Korkor Gligah, Lecturer at the Entrepreneurship and Marketing Department, Koforidua Technical University, has applauded the 2021 National Skills Competition and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Expo launched in Accra.

She said the platform would complement the TVET programme to drive Ghana’s industrialization agenda.

Mrs Gligah gave the commendation in an interview with the Ghana News Agency in Koforidua.

She said Ghana’s unemployment hurdle challenging successive governments could be overcome to a large extent through quality skills training.

The 2021 National Skills Competition was launched by Dr Mahamadu Bawumia, Vice President, in October this year.

It aims to create a platform for competitors to showcase their skills while the TVET Expo, afforded stakeholders in TVET to exhibit the impact of government’s investment in the promotion of technical and vocational education and training.

Mrs Gligah implored students on the TVET programme to also give attention to technological inclusion, adding that, technology has come to stay which could be added to their skills.

Mr Eric Owusu Agyeman, Eastern Regional Director for Technical and Vocational Education and Training, said measures were underway by the government in strengthening the ongoing policies with respect to TVET for it to be under a unified and a strong educational system.

He said TVET workforce would help reduce unemployment because companies interested in working hand in hand with the Government could employ them.
