A three-day intensive wider management meeting has been held in Ho to harness growth and expand the scope of work of the National Vocational Training Institute (NVTI).
The meeting was to produce quality skilled human resource with the right attitudes and values required for the growth and prosperity of the Technical and Vocational industry.
It was under the theme, “Improving performance through effective managerial competencies and practices”.
Addressing the participants, the Executive Director for NVTI, Mrs. Mawusi Nudekor Awity urged workers to build strong relationships with stakeholders and trainees that they render services to, in the industry.
“We need to work together as a team, they are our clients, for effective team building we have to reposition ourselves and let the world know that NVTI is the shaker and lover of TVET”, she said.
She stated that although the institute encountered many challenges such as lack of personnel and resources, it has done much better, adding that, it also chalked many successes such as provision and expansion of schools, head office and regional offices across the country.
She added that “despite the challenges we have faced, we have made to honey flow”.
She acknowledged the contribution and advocacy role of the President, Akuffo Addo to reducing drastically the unemployment syndrome in the country.
She entreated the Ghanaian youth to get enrolled into NVTI and get additional vocational training to enable them to gain income in order to build the TVET landscape in the country.
“Vocational training is a way to make Ghana a better country so train in a Vocational school especially NVTI to enable trainees to compete on the job market”, she reiterated.
In her remark, the Human Resource Manager for NVTI, Alice Akorfa Doney said the aim of the institute as part of its three-year strategic plan effective 2020, is to build relationships with the trainees to help achieve its objectives as an institution.
Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) in Ghana has been very helpful for the training and education of the youth with the needed skills to better enhance their livelihood.
The main objective of TVET is to develop an effectively co-ordinated and harmonized TVET system that is capable of producing quality skilled human resource with the right attitudes and values required for growth and prosperity of the various sectors of the economy.
Most Ghanaian youths have therefore benefited from the TVET since the introduction of a technical and vocational Institute that seeks to train people technically to enable and empower them to stand on their own.
