The Development of Skills for Industry Project (DSIP) is designed to reinforce the Government of Ghana’s efforts to reform Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET). The intervention consists of a loan of UA 45.00 million, an ADF (African Develpment Fund) grant of UA 25.00 million and a Government of Ghana (GoG) contribution of UA 7.70 million. It will be implemented within a 5 year period, and will focus on supporting key reform areas in the TVET subsector to improve equitable access, quality and relevance and efficient management of TVET delivery in the formal and informal sectors.
The project will contribute to the achievement of the following key outcomes: improved teaching and learning environment in the 13 beneficiary public TVET institutions; increased participation levels in TVET; increased female participation in science related TVET courses; efficient and effective policy, planning quality control systems for TVET established at the coordination level. It will also help achieve key outputs of the TVET reform, including (i) preparation of a costed strategic plan to guide the development of skills in Ghana; (ii) increasing the supply of high caliber middle level technicians and TVET instructors; (iii) reviewing the instructor training curriculum; (iv) strengthening the capacity of the Council for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (COTVET); and (vi) operationalizing the prior learning mechanism and the accreditation system for TVET.
A broad scope of beneficiaries is targeted by the project in all the regions of Ghana. The project will cover 10 out of the 38 technical institutions, 2 polytechnic schools and the College of Technology Education in Kumasi – University of Education, Winneba under the Ministry of Education. Other beneficiaries of the project include the families of all students, the teaching staff and prospective employers. The families of students who succeed in completing their studies in the TI’s will have enhanced possibilities of increased lifetime earnings. Twenty five (25) instructors (5 PhDs and 20 Masters) at the Kumasi College of Technology Education, and 200 instructors and 50 senior managers in TI’s will have their skills upgraded. Employers and industries will benefit from the strengthened capacity and improved quality of TVET delivery by having access to high caliber labour that will be graduating from these institutions.
