Government’s role is to create enabling environment for job creation

Accra, Nov. 30, GNA – Dr Fred Kyei Asamoah, Director General, Commission for Technical, Vocational, Education and Training (CTVET), says the government’s role is not to create jobs but to create an enabling environment for the private sector to do so.

He said the private sector was key after the government had rolled out various policies to create an enabling environment for job creation.

Dr Asamoah stated this at the GH School’s graduation for the 12th, 3rd and 1st cohorts of the Media, Cosmetology and Fashion Schools in Achimota at the weekend.

The ceremony was on the theme: “Innovation, Creativity, and Productivity- a Key Component of TVET.”

Dr Asamoah outlined the importance of Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) and urged the graduates to be more skilful and distinct in their work.

“You cannot be successful when you decide to do what everybody is doing that is why the government have been going through the TVET transformation. There are two Acts that have been added, the Education Regulatory Body Act and the Pre Tertiary Education Act,” he noted.

He emphasized the need for the country to appreciate technical education to quicken the country’s development, adding that, “the country needs doers and not theoretical degree holders.”

Mr Leslie Addo Listowell, the Rector of GH Schools, charged the graduates to be hardworking devoid of complaints and unprofessionalism.

He said they should be true ambassadors of the School, adding that, “go out there and break the rules, not the laws, be true to yourselves, be bold, brave, create jobs for yourselves, seize opportunities out there, create your own job where there is none and above all put your trust in God in whatever you do.”

Mrs Belomina Addo Listowell, Deputy Rector, Monitoring and Supervision of the School, urged the graduates to effect positive change in their various fields of work, noting that, “creativity and innovation if well nurtured will eventually breed productivity.”

The School graduated 252 students of the 12th cohort for the Media, third cohort for the Cosmetology and 1st cohort of the Fashion School.

There were various academic awards, including Television and Radio
Journalism, Print Journalism, Media Law and Ethics, Media Marketing, Directing, Producing, Theatre Arts, Editing, Sound, Camera, to mention but few in Cosmetology and Fashion.

Others also received awards under special non-academic awards such as Best Dressed Students, Well Behaved Students, Most Enterprising Students, Most Promising Students, Most Dedicated Students, Rector’s and Chancellor’s awards and many others.

In an interview with the Ghana News Agency, Miss Deborah Appiah, who emerged as the overall best student in Media Studies, encouraged every student to be self-discipline to achieve greater heights.
