Validating curricula for Ghanaian TVETS
In the last week of June, a three-day online workshop was held to validate the new curriculum for 3 agricultural TVET colleges in Ghana. The Ghanaian partners also included the Government body COTVET responsible for the content of TVET education in Ghana.
They went through the curriculum as proposed by the Dutch partners meticulously but constructively. Apart from a few developmental aspects that needed to be further elaborated, the Ghanaian partners gave the new curriculum their blessing. The next steps are to work out the new curriculum in more detail, train staff and introduce the new materials at the colleges.
Institutional strengthening of national bodies for technical and vocational education
The aim of the 3-year project is on strengthening the Council For Technical And Vocational Educational Training (COTVET) and other bodies to support integration of the ATVETB sector in the TVET system, to develop/finalize a NQF, revise and develop NQF proof ATVET curricula and develop an action plan for implementation. In strengthening the entire ATVET chain, the consortium will work for quality education that provides Ghana with a skilled workforce to strengthen its agricultural sector, bring economic growth, and ensure income for individual households and appropriate agricultural work for its young population. The project is part of the Nuffic Orange Knowledge Programme.
