Government to establish Technical and Vocational Education Service (TVES)- Education Minister

The Minister of Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, has announced that as part of the government’s efforts to revamp and mainstream Technical, Vocational Education & Training (TVET) in this country, a Technical and Vocational Education Service (TVES) is to be set up under the Ministry of Education.

Speaking earlier today at the TVET Expo held today at the Movenpick Hotel in Accra, Dr. Prempeh stated that the purpose of the agency is to provide focused attention on this important sector, in line with the President’s vision of a skilled country ready to provide the manpower needs for its industrialization drive. To this end, the Pre-Tertiary Bill which will establish and allow for the operationalization of the TVES is currently before Parliament.
