Hon. Amankwah Asiamah Urges Parents To Enroll Their Children Into Technical Institutions

The Chairman of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Education, Hon. Kwabena Amankwah Asiamah has urged parents to enroll their children into Technical and Vocational schools to acquire technical knowledge for the brightest of their future since they can explore more opportunities in their careers due to their training.

According to Hon. Amankwah Asiamah, recent statistics show that people are finding it difficult to find jobs in Africa because they have no technical skills. He further stressed that students who are trained in Technical institutions have the knowledge and technical know-how to create jobs on their own hence making them not to be unemployed but rather reducing the unemployment rate in the country because when they create their own jobs, they will employ a lot of people.

Hon. Kwabena Amankwah Asiamah was of the view that countries like Germany, China, Hongkong and Singapore have been able to develop because of their high concentration on Technical institutions which is helping to lead the whole world in a lot of things.

He made all these known when he led a 20 membered Education Committee to inspect TVET projects in the Western Region.

Speaking to the media, the Ranking Member of the Committee, Hon. Peter Nortsu-Kotoe, observed that even though the government is supporting Technical education it's still not enough to compare to the current needs of citizens in the 16 regions in the country.

He pointed out a need for the TVET facilities to be made more user-friendly to people with disabilities. It will amaze you to a technical institute or a vocational institute which a disability student is attending being built in a way that it will not be easily accessible by the person with a disability.

The Committee inspected ongoing projects at the Takoradi Technical Institute, Takoradi VTI and Takoradi Technical University. The purpose of the working visit is for the MPs to check whether the loans and financial agreements approved by Parliament for government agencies are being used appropriately.
