The government has committed one billion dollars to revamp Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET).
This is intended to make it more attractive and capable of equipping the students with the required skills needed in the industrial sector of the economy.
The Upper East Regional Minister, Mr Stephen Yakubu, disclosed this when he addressed the 10th Congregation of the Bolgatanga Technical University (BTU).
He said the government was in the process of establishing the Ghana Skills Development Fund to create room for industries to contribute toward the realization of this educational dream.
Mr Yakubu advised the graduands to think outside the box to create jobs for themselves because of the competition in the jobs market.
He later commissioned a workshop for the Technical University which is designed to equip Civil, Electronic and Mechanical Engineering students with relevant skills.
The BTU was provided with a 200-kilowatt diesel generating unit to solve power supply disruption in the school.
