The Bilateral European Agencies (BEA) has rolled-out measures to implement the Vocational, Education and Training (VET) toolbox, a new international facility to provide the needed expertise to enhance employment in the country.
A statement signed by Mr Alan Walsch, the Country Director of GIZ Ghana and copied to Ghana News Agency (GNA) indicated that the VET Toolbox aimed at offering opportunities for young people to find jobs, while on the other hand it will provide the human capital, the private sector desperately needed.
The statement indicated that employment was a key factor for development and inclusive growth, which linked economic opportunities and poverty reduction in Ghana.
The statement said VET Toolbox was a new international facility that provided partner country with much needed expertise, tools on themes such as VET policy and reform, labour market intelligence, private sector engagement in VET, and inclusiveness of the disadvantaged group as a response to the demands and opportunities of the labour market.
The Fair International Association for Development (FARIAD), a Ghanaian NGO and private TVET provider, requested VET toolbox support in the development of public-private partnerships, in career guidance and counselling and curriculum development in Ghana.
In view of the development, a forum would be organised on April 12 to provide an insight into the work of the Toolbox more broadly and provide advice on how other organizations in Ghana might benefit from the support Toolbox offers.
