TVET training undergoes refinement

Technical and Vocational Education and Training   (TVET) in the country is being refined  to better tackle the unemployment challenges in the country, the Director-General (DG) of the TVET Service, Mawusi Nudekor Awity, has said.


The measures, which form part of the government’s transformational agenda to enable TVET to have a significant impact include modernisation and retooling of TVET institutions, capacity building for teachers, massive recruitment of new teachers, strong collaboration with donor partners, emphasis on soft skills development to promote employability, strengthening linkages with industries, among others.

This was announced in a speech read on her behalf by the Director for Training Assessment and Quality Assurance, Samuel Debrah, at the 22nd graduation ceremony of the 2nd Image International Skills College in Accra.

She said despite the momentous gains in access to education and accomplishments across the world over the past decade, the world was still faced with youth unemployment and added that quality TVET was widely recognised as having an important role to play in tackling this problem, hence, the measures. 


The graduation was on the theme, “Positive attitude: The power to succeed”.

More than 120 students graduated from the school with diplomas and certificates in beauty and spa, body therapy, fashion and designing, beauty specialist and hairdressing, among others.

The D-G urged the students to adopt a positive attitude throughout their interactions with others.

“Positive attitude will help you nurture remarkable advantages in your daily life and lead to increased satisfaction in your career and relationships.

“Positive attitude helps you cope more easily with daily life as it brings optimism into your life and makes it easier to avoid worries and negative thinking. 
“If you adopt a positive attitude as a way of life, it will bring constructive changes, make you happier, brighter and more successful,” the D-G said. 

Practical work

The Director of Administration at the 2nd Image International College, Clint Boa-Amponsem, said to help its graduates to be creative, good decision-makers and to be relevant in nation-building, the school emphasised on practical academic work and moral principles.

Mr Boa-Amponsem reminded the graduates of their crucial role needed to propel the country’s development, adding: “Positive attitude is key to success, I believe the positive attitude you have maintained throughout your study with us will lead you to success.

“It is an undeniable fact that our experiences whether school or home reflect who we are and who we shall become.

They affect the perspective we deal with situations, therefore, I urge you to reflect on the experiences you have had in 2nd image and never forget your alma mater,” he added.
