Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama says his second coming as President of the republic will see free Technical and Vocational Education (TVET) at all levels.
He made this known at the launch of the NDC’s campaign donations fundraiser in Accra last Thursday.
“I’ll make technical and vocational education in Ghana, free of charge. I note that, this has generated a positive reception from Ghanaians. Let me assure that, our program of technical and vocational education are comprehensive and far-reaching. The free TVET will operate from all levels from the second cycle to tertiary.
”To be clear, students of technical and vocational education at the second and tertiary level will pay no fees. We must not pay lip service to technical and vocational education. This is the training that will move this country to the next level. So we will bring TVET on board to create the middle-level manpower that will be beneficial to businesses and industries. This is the critical gap my initiative intends to address.” he said.
