President Akufo-Addo has cut the sod for work to begin on the upgrade and modernisation of the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) system in Ghana at a cost of more than 130 million dollars.

The project comprises the refurbishment of existing infrastructure and the construction of new ones for 34 NVTI centres, construction of a new Head office, 10 regional offices and 5 apprenticeship offices.

Other components of the project are the procurement of equipment for 26 trades, the provision of a 33-seater bus for each of the 34 NVTIs.

In addition, two new training centres for foundry and machining workshops are to be set up at the CSIR centre in Accra, and at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.

At a ceremony at the premises of CSIR, East Legon, President Akufo-Addo urged the contractors to work hard and deliver the projects on time and within budget.

The President also charged tutors and instructors to impart knowledge to students through the modern equipment which are to be provided.

He noted that this integrated approach will improve the quality of TVET system across the entire educational system, and result in the empowering of the youth.
