We Have Produced Graduates Who Are Not Needed In Our Society - Angel Carbonu

Many people believe that the high rate of graduate unemployment in Ghana is due to the unemployable skillset associated with our educational system in Ghana.

The President of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), Angel Carbonu, has revealed that our educational system in Ghana has produced graduates whose skills set are not needed in our societies.

Angel Carbonu made this emphatic statement on 'Good Morning Ghana' on Metro TV when he gave his opinion on Ghana's educational system and its effect on graduate unemployment.

According to him, it is so obvious that there is a disconnect between the type of graduates produced and the needs of our society in Ghana.

"As a nation, we should take a very firm decision and realize that we are producing graduates who are not needed in our society.

We are producing graduates who are misfits because we don't have avenues for them to work and that there is a huge market out there for skillful people to work." - he stated

He revealed that when some oil rigs were looking for welders, they had to bring welders from Asia because they realized that the Ghanaian welders were not that skillful for marine welding. So, we lost out on that opportunity due to our skillset.
