The Chairperson of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Education, Kwabena Amankwa Asiamah, has said the government continues to spend on the upgrading and also the modernisation of the country’s vocational education system. Technical Universities across the country are also being retooled and equipped to drive
the government’s industrialisation programme. This is being spearheaded by the Commission for Technical and Vocational Education and Training. Mr. Asiamah, the Fanteakwa North MP, noted that the government, through this programme, was committed to training more of the youth to also help fulfil its industrialisation
agenda. It has been clear that the expenditure of the government in TVET is not rogue. It is real,” Mr. Asiamah said. The latest machines are being installed and we all can see that these machines will help our youth to learn the modern technology and also fit in the modern way of doing things so we can rub shoulders with all other
students who are doing technical education in any other country. The Commission for Technical and Vocational Education and the Training’s primary responsibility is to regulate, promote and also administer the technical and vocational education and training for transformation and the innovation for sustainable development also. It
formulates policies for skills development across pre tertiary and the tertiary education, formal, informal and alternative education, whilst supervising the activities of the technical and the vocational education and training institutions to meet the requirements of both the formal and informal sectors. The commission was established by Education Regulatory Bodies Act 2020 (Act 1023).
