The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has declared the government’s intention to establish the first-ever second cycle TVET Applied Technology High School in the country.
Speaking at the launch of the Ghana TVET Service held at the Accra Technical Training Centre (ATTC), on Tuesday, Dr. Bawumia noted that the establishment of the TVET Applied Technology High School is in tandem with the government’s mission to make Ghana’s TVET centres one of the best in Sub-Saharan Africa.
According to him, this would play a significant role in promoting the government’s TVET agenda.
“We’re going to establish the first-ever second cycle TVET Applied Technology High School across the country. The programmes to be offered at the Applied Technology High School will be designed as career-based technical education which integrates career and technical education with a rigorous academic core and industry participation,” he said.
He indicated that the industry participation bit of the TVET Applied Technology High School will drive demand for students who graduate from there.
“The programmes will be benchmarked against international best practices and standards,” he added.
The Vice President stated that the TVET Applied Technology High School will be well-positioned to respond appropriately to ‘national needs and expectations of socio-economic transformation.’
He said, “Most importantly, the Applied Technology High School will build strategic alliances with community, industry, development partners, and the government to ensure that it is responsive to the national needs and expectations of socio-economic transformation.”
The government, pursuant to achieving their TVET agenda, has already designated four new TVET institutions across the country for this programme, Dr. Bawumia revealed.
Meanwhile, TVET institutions captured under the Ghana TVET Service have been included in the next academic year’s computerized school selection system.
