Ghana’s Parliamentary select Education Committee as part of its oversight responsibilities has paid a working visit to inspect some Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) projects within Central Region.
The Committee at their visit to Gracelove Creations Training Institute observed the institution has expanded its facilities and enrollment since the government started offering financial support as part of the TVET Voucher Project.
Members of the Committee on Education also inspected a new hostel building being constructed by the Management of the Winneba-based Creations Training Institute of the institution due to the benefit of the Voucher Project.
Speaking to the MPs, the CEO of Gracelove, Mrs Joana Eshun said since the institute started accessing the funds from the TVET Voucher Project 2 years ago, it has trained 240 apprentices with some coming from outside the country.
The Parliamentary Select Committee on Education also inspected the North Campus of Vocational Training and Rehabilitation Institute in Biriwa where the new boys’ hostel and administration blocks are being constructed.
According to them, Biriwa Vocational Training Institute through the TVET Voucher Project will have a new girls hostel, a one-unit workshop block for bricklaying and concreting, and an oil and gas equipment maintenance workshop.
The TVET Voucher Project is a government initiative aimed at increasing access to master craft persons, workers and their apprentices to training vouchers. It is being co-financed by the German Government through KFW.
The Education Committee in a post sighted by EducationWeb.com.gh has said it after the inspection at the Central Region will move to inspect other ongoing and completed TVET projects in Western, Ashanti and Eastern Regions.
