The Commission for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (CTVET) has been adjudged the best education sector agency under the Ministry of Education (MoE) for its outstanding performance in the 2021 academic year.
The recognition of the Vocational Education and Training Commission follows an outstanding achievement as the best-performed agency in the implementation of its roadmap in line with the Ministry’s 2021 performance agreement.
CTVET also beats 12 other agencies under the Ministry in charge of Education (MoE) in the annual evaluation exercise conducted by a team of consultants led by Professor Jophus Anamoah Mensah, an astute educationist.
According to the 2021 ranking sighted by EducationWeb, the National Teaching Council (NTC) and the Student Loans Trust (SLTF) placed second and third respectively. The management of the two agencies was honoured with citations.
Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, the Minister for Education following the enormous contribution of the award winners to the country’s education commended the management of best-performed agencies for their dedication and hard work.
He at the annual performance contract signing meeting urged those who could not win any award to redouble their effort and strive to go the extra mile towards the attainment of laurels in subsequent evaluation exercises.
Dr Adutwum hinted that from hence the performance contract was going to be the responsibility of the Board of the Agencies and not to the management, this, according to him would lead to very effective supervision and efforts towards the attainment of the Key Quality Indicators (KPI) set in their performance contract for the year.
The Minister further urged the staff, management and board members of the various agencies to be innovative in all their activities so they could come out with new ideas which could help them improve their performances at all times.
The Director-General of CTVET, Dr Fred Yamoah Kyei, reacting to the achievement of his outfit commended the Education Minister for the award and pledged to work extra hard to help bring development into all their activities.
He said measures had been put in place to ensure that there was a deep relationship between the TVET institutes and industry so that students could be allowed to embark on scheduled industrial attachments to enhance their training.
