Causes for the falling standards of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) in Ghana

Author(s): Courage Mawuli Komla Otchi
Abstract:
In order to prepare the country's technical workforce for rapid industrialization and national development, technical and vocational education and training (TVET) has proven to be one of the most effective human resource development techniques. The researcher used this as the foundation for her investigation into the factors contributing to the declining levels of craft practice skills in technical and vocational institutions. The study focused on how cooperation between practical skill display and workshop process instruction might improve skill acquisition and training by examining the current environment in which the TVET system in the nation operates. For the purpose of collecting data for this project, questionnaires and interviews were chosen as the primary data collection methods. The heads of the chosen technical and vocational institutes were interviewed, while students and instructors were surveyed using questionnaires. According to the survey, the majority of technical institutes lack adequate infrastructure, which has an impact on the standard of instruction provided there. The allotted time for workshop practice is insufficient. The institutes are also plagued by inadequate oversight and monitoring. Students are not required to have an industrial attachment, and the institutions do not take them on excursions to the workplace. Although the curriculum being employed is not industry-driven, TVET graduates find it challenging to obtain employment after graduation. According to the report, the state of technical and vocational schools now has a significant impact on how well students score on exams as compared to previous years. Therefore, it is advised that the government make significant investments in the TVET sector and make itself available for collaboration with business organizations.
