The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has said that the government will by the end of 2019 construct 21 state-of-the-art Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) Centers across this country.
These centers, and the several Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) centers which are already under construction will provide support for the introduction of STEM into basic education, after the completion of a successful pilot phase.
“All is set for the construction of 21 state-of-the-art Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) Centers this year in the various regions of the country. The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) centers are also being built around the country to provide support for the introduction of STEM into basic education, after the completion of a successful pilot phase,” he said.
The President made the promise while addressing participants of the Global Peace Inter-Generational Dialogue which was launched on Monday 6th May 2019 at the Kempiski Hotel in Accra.
The first gentleman also assured the youth that he and his cabinet are working tirelessly to ensure that the Ghanaian youth is globally competitive in all dimensions.
“They have to survive. Technology is what helps us to make the world truly a global village, and enables once poor people to become prosperous, and scale up the value of their economic activities,” he said.
The Global Peace Inter-Generational Dialogue was organised by the Ghana Union of Professional Students (GUPS).
The Union which ensures the well being and channels grievances of members to the government expressed their gratitude to the President for this initiative.
GUPS was established as a platform for the youth to interact with leaders, to reach a consensus on the best approach towards developing our respective countries, to bring the views of the youth to bear on developmental issues, and to help create a better and prosperous future for us all.
