The Deputy Minister for Education in charge of Technical, Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Gifty Twum Ampofo and the Commissioner for TVET, Dr Fred Kyei Asamoah, last week toured some selected TVET institutions which are serving as centres for the ongoing 2021 May/June Certificate II Core Examination.
The tour was aimed at ascertaining how the examination was being conducted and also wish the candidates well.
Some of the centres visited are the Accra Technical Training Centre at Kokomlemle, Dabokpa, Tamale, Walewale, St. Bernadette, Navrongo and Bolgatanga Technical Institutes.
Speaking to the media after the tour, Gifty Twum Ampofo indicated that “this assessment has been designed to ensure that students’ transition to the world of work or pursuit of higher academic laurels is seamless”.
She added that the “government has taken the necessary steps to ensure that their certification is recognized by both industry and institutions of higher learning”.
Dr Fred Kyei Asamoah, on his part, expressed his delight with the conduct of the exams so far and assured the general public that the Commission has taken enough precautionary steps to ensure that the sanctity and integrity of the examinations are upheld.
He urged the candidates to work hard and ensure that they passed the examination so that the huge investment being made by the government and other stakeholders for their education does not go to waste.
Dr Asamoah was upbeat that, if the candidates can pass, they would not only make their families proud, but they could also support the nation’s development by joining the labour force to enhance productivity.
Students in TVET institutions nationwide began writing their May/June Certificate II Core Exams from September 6, 2021, are expected to complete them on 13th September 2021.
