A workshop has been organized for all Principals of the Ghana TVET Service training institutions. The workshop, the first to be held took place at the Burma Hall, Burma Camp, Accra, and it was aimed at building the capacity of the principals of the various training institutions across the country to enable them to become exceptional in their lines of duty.
In her welcome address, Mrs. Mawusi Nudekor Awity, Director General of the Ghana TVET Service said she is keen on seeing to the welfare of the human resource development of the Service because she strongly believes the training institutions shall thrive when resources are spent on building the capacity of employees. She assured the Honourable Minister of Education that the Service will do everything possible to ensure that he succeeds. “We are confident that TVET shall become the cornerstone”, she stated.
Mrs. Awity urged the principals to grab the bull by the horn and run along with her in fulfilling the Presidents vision of making TVET attractive again. She added that TVET must be the first point of call when it comes to education in Ghana and entreated the principals to come on board to make it possible.
