CTVET declared best agency for third successive time

The commission for technical and vocational education and training (CTVET), the ministry’s top-performing agency, has won the 2024 Ministry of Education Excellence Award. After winning the excellence award from 2021 to 2023, the CTVET has been acknowledged for the third time in a row for their outstanding performance as the best-performing agency within the Ministry of Education. 

Director General of CTVET Dr. Fred Kyei Asamoah told reporters in Q Accra that the award would spur the Commission’s management and employees to further efforts.

“Recognition is very critical in the life of every employee, so, this award has motivated the entire staff of the Commission to work harder… it is a source of pride for all staff of this organization, sometimes it is not the money but the little gratitude that what motivate workers,”

In addition, Dr. Asamoah clarified that the Commission was creating a new service plan to appropriately inspire employees to deliver in order for the company to fulfil its objective.

“If you have a motivated workforce in an organization, people become creative and innovative to help achieve your goal as a body,” he said.

In order to help students transfer from the old to the new TVET system, Dr. Asamoah also revealed that over 8,000 instructors from public and commercial TVET institutions have received training in the new harmonised curriculum.

He said about 300 public and private TVET institutions would benefit from the distribution of learning manuals which will serve as the baseline for their training.

Dr Asamoah appealed to the private sector partner government in the TVET training since the government alone cannot shoulder all the costs since TVET education is expensive.

“TVET education is expensive, and I don’t think we should have only government investing in it… this government has done so well by jumpstarting the whole process and I believe that going forward we will need the private sector to come in” he said.

Dr Asamoah also revealed that despite the huge investment the government have made into the TVET sector over the period, Ghana is still at the initiation stage because the country had nothing before 2017 and whatever has been achieved for the past seven years is the foundation, we cannot afford not to build on it.

“If you look at what had happened over the past seven years, it felt like there was nothing in Ghana this is because we never paid much attention to TVET and never felt it was a major contributor to the economy” he added.
