The government of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has spent almost GH¢10 billion in direct investment in the development of Technical, Vocational Education Training (TVET) in the country, Ing Peter Antwi Bosiako, Deputy Director - General, Commission for TVET has disclosed.

 According to him, the unprecedented financial investment by Nana Addo / Dr Bawumiah administration was to prop up skills training and development system in Ghana in the last seven years.

He stated these in a one - on - one conversation with Kwaku Dawuro on Movement In The Morning show on Movement Television in Accra, closely monitored by the Asempa Dawuro on NPP's milestone achievement on TVET in Ghana. 

Ing Antwi Bosiako noted that 23 state-of-the-art workshop training centres are established across the country, all the 10 Technical Universities have had their workshop upgraded to modern standards,

The Deputy Director - General indicated that other Technical Institutions benefited from the project with newest technology and equipment in their workshops.

 He stressed that enrollment to TVET institutions some years back was 24,000 but has shot up to 60,000 currently and that it will clock 100,000 per year soon with the support of Dr Osei Yaw Adutwum, the Education Minister.

Ing Antwi Bosiako said the Voucher Project which is being run by the CTVET has trained over 19,000 master craft Persons and their apprentices across the country in the last seven years.

 He added that over 120 Companies, enterprises and institutions have also been supported and benefited through the ongoing Ghana Skills Development Fund project under the Commission to help increase their productivity, introduced new technology and created more jobs for Ghanaians.

 The Deputy Director - General stated that Act 1023 established Commission for TVET (CTVET) to regulate, administer and promote TVET across the country, both Tertiary and Pre - tertiary.

"Act 1049 also established the Pre - tertiary Education services which gave birth to the TVET Service and Ghana Education Service. They are to manage Pre - tertiary TVET Education and Grammar Secondary Schools respectively"

"TVET is life and ongoing, and everyone must get involved to get his or her skill and talent harnessed for personal enhancement and economic growth of the country" he reechoed.

 Ing Antwi Bosiako emphasised that TVET is a highly skilled development and it produces a ready market for jobs and products designed out of the sector unlike the various grammar schools.

 He refuted the impression that skills training is a reserved of the poorly - minded persons in society as erroneously portrayed, and that it rather demands very intelligent and smart people.

"how can a lazy and dump person open an engine, identify faults, fix them and get vehicles back on the road. The old narrative on TVET is changing. Let's all embrace it" the Deputy Director - General quizzed.
