Students will receive 1.2 million textbooks from TVET- CTVET Director General confirms

Dr. Fred Kyei Asamoah, the Director General of the Commission for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (CTVET), has announced a comprehensive strategy to raise Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in Ghana.

He states that more than 1.2 million TVET textbooks covering 24 programs will be sent to educational institutions across the country in an attempt to improve the caliber of teaching and learning in the TVET industry.

Dr. Asamoah presented the implementation of Competency-Based Training (CBT) as the cornerstone of the educational approach during a press conference on Monday.

He explained that CBT ensures that learners’ education aligns with industry standards, fostering individual competence over group performance.

Moreover, Dr. Asamoah emphasized the standardization of existing curricula and the training of over 8,000 TVET instructors in the CBT methodology.

Beyond curriculum development, significant strides have been made in infrastructure expansion. Dr. Asamoah announced the completion of a state-of-the-art TVET centre of excellence in Anyinam and Pakyi No. 2, with two additional centres nearing completion in Akumadan and Assin Jakain.

These facilities are poised to enhance practical learning experiences and equip students with in-demand skills.

In tandem with infrastructure development, the Commission has undertaken an ambitious curriculum enhancement initiative.

Dr. Asamoah disclosed the development of 108 new TVET curricula, with an additional 115 curricula in progress. This initiative, guided by sector skills bodies and industry experts, aims to address skills gaps and ensure relevance to evolving market demands.

The curriculum’s learning materials have been printed for the first time in a historic move that will shortly be sent to TVET institutions across the country.

This program, which is a component of the Free TVET for ALL effort, demonstrates the government’s dedication to ensuring that all students have fair access to high-quality education and to helping them become self-sufficient.

Dr. Asamoah did, however, restate the government’s commitment to funding TVET education as a means of bringing about social change. One of the mainstays of Ghana’s educational system is TVET education, which molds lives and gets students ready for well-paying jobs.
