    Embrace Govt’s TVET Opportunity to enhance your skills – Artisans told

    The Director of Commission for Technical and Vocational Training at the Kumasi Technical University (KTU), Dr. Fred Kyei Asamoah has urged artisans to take advantage of government’s initiative to formalize their training through Proficiency Training under the TVET program.

    This he said will help them be abreast with modern trends for greater employment opportunities.

    He said this in a speech read on his behalf at the inaugural program of CIMAF Ghana and KTU’s collaborative training program initiated to train artisans within the informal sector with modern technology to enhance their skills within the construction industry.

    In all, 1,400 Ghanaians will be trained throughout the country this year and they will be awarded certificates that will help them seek formal employment within the construction sector or enhance their skills in their existing skills.

    Speaking at the inaugural event, the Vice Chancellor of KTU, Prof Osei–Wusu Achaw called for collaboration from industries in Ghana to train more skillful human resource for industries to benefit fully from the TVET initiative of the Government and also get the needed skills for industry to employ.

    He noted that even though industries are the direct beneficiaries of products from the various technical universities, not much collaboration has been received years back and thanked CIMAF for this and urged others to follow suit.
