Takoradi, Oct 22, GNA – The Deputy Minister
for Education in charge of Technical Vocational Education Training (TVET) has
stated that the subject area was not for the slack as perceived by society.

“TVET is not for slacking in academics…
How did we develop that mentality as a people, are engineers, manufacturers and
designers people of less brains no, in fact you even need high brains to
venture into TVET… as it requires innovation and critical thinking to achieve
results”, she added.

The Deputy Minister was speaking at the end of
a two-day Developing Industry Standards conference 2018 on the theme
“Developing Skills and Standards for Industry”.

She mentioned that government was committed to
developing TVET in the country through various interventions and initiatives
adding, “the country can develop well when we all change our minds on the
subject”.

Mrs Gifty Eugenia Kusi, the Deputy Western
Regional Minister urged stakeholders with interest in skills development and
improved training to facilitate action to modernise TVET and to align with oil
and gas and other industry standards.

She said the modernisation of skills training
was essential for more Ghanaians to acquire the requisite competencies to
participate in the value chain of the industry.

Mrs Kusi was however worried about the
ineffective relationships between industry, government TVET implementers and
technical institutions that had resulted in skills mismatch and mentioned that
government had put in place a five year strategic plan for TVET which would
result in its Service and council.

Nana Kwesi Agyeman ix, paramount chief of
Lower Dixcove said developing TVET was developing Ghana and its progress and
encouraged policy makers to ponder on the subject matter and make an informed
policy direction and decision on the subject area.
