The Director-General of the Ghana TVET Service, Mrs. Mawusi Nudekor Awity, has called on principals of the Ghana TVET Service institutions to put in more effort to make TVET attractive to the youth.
“Dear colleagues, to be specific, today’s meeting is to build our capacity as Principals of the various technical and vocational training institutes across the country to enable us to become excellent in our line of duty. It has been my goal to see to the welfare of the human resource of the Service first because I strongly believe that our institution shall thrive when we spend resources building the capacity of our people,” she said.
She added that the Ghana TVET Service seeks to become an exemplary public institution and be the pacesetter in quality education service delivery in Ghana and the sub-region.
She called on the principals to join hands with her to fulfill the President’s vision of making TVET attractive again.
“As I have always indicated we are on an audacious agenda, and I will need everybody, especially you the Principals of the institutes on board to grab the bull by the horn, and run along with me as we fulfill the President’s vision of making TVET attractive again,” she urged.
