The Managing Proprietor of the Star of Africa Montessori Academy at Nsowko in the Bono Region, Mr Afful Manu Benjamin has disclosed that focusing on Technical and Vocational Training (TVET) will be one of the best options that can help reduce the unemployment problems confronting Ghana.
According to the Proprietor who is also a renowned business man, if Ghanaians really want to transform the economy through job creation, they should not neglect technical and vocational training.
Instead of over reliance on reading and writing form of education in the country.
Speaking to the Opera News Content writer King Amoah in an interview, Mr Manu stated that most Ghanaians are erudite but lack basic job skills.
Hence the observance of unemployment challenges in the country.
In his view on the TVET initiative Mr. Manu popularly known as Nsowkaw Dehyie underscored that the high unemployment rate confronting the youth can be linked to the absence of promoting technical and vocational skills training in the country.
Stressing that as it has become clear to the world economies that technical skills training is one of the back policies that help build a country, Ghana should stay focused to promote Tvet education to help transform the society.
The businessman advised the authorities to place TVET education in the centre of job creation strategy to successfully address the high youth unemployment challenges in the country.
Nsokowdehyie was of the view that if proper attention is paid to the Tvet education it will go a long way to not only serve as a job creation center for the youth alone but it will also help government in revenue generation to help build the economy.
