The Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) has called on government to improve upon Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) to enhance quality and adherence to industry standards.
In a press release, the group indicated that government must “elevate its touted commitments to TVET beyond the provision of classrooms to an extensive focus on well-equipped workshops.”
The release comes as a response to President Akufo-Addo’s State of Nation Address (SONA) delivered on Parliament on Tuesday, March 9, 2021 on Education.
According to the group, although some progress has been made in the sector for the last years, they believe revising the system will help address some of the challenges TVET is facing.
The release also proposed “that a percentage of the government’s vocational and technical contracts be awarded to TVET institutions to enable trainees to undertake full-scale industrial production whiles generating revenue for the institutions.”
CSJ also called on government to consider an increase in Students loan amount for all Tertiary students who are in need.
“The loan amount as the current average of ¢2500 per student per academic year is woefully inadequate to cover tertiary education costs,” the statement said.
