COLTEK Gains Full Accreditation to run CBT Programmes under Ghana TVET Voucher Project

The Council for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (COTVET) has granted full accreditation to the College of Technology Education, Kumasi (COLTEK) to run Competency-Based Training (CBT) Programmes under the Ghana TVET Voucher Project (GTVP).

This makes COLTEK of the University of Education, Winneba (UEW) the only university in the country with the privilege to run programmes under the GTVP.

The GTVP is a project under Ghana-German Financial Development Cooperation, funded by the KfW German Development Bank, and implemented by COTVET.

The project commenced in 2017 to provide training for registered master craft persons, workers and apprentices in the informal sector of the country.

Announcing this at the 24th Congregation of UEW in Kumasi, the Vice-Chancellor, Rev. Fr. Prof. Anthony Afful-Broni said COLTEK was currently in full swing recruitment of master craftsmen in four specialized programmes under the GTVP for onward registration with COTVET to pave way for the commencement of the programmes.

He named the programmes as Garment Making; Electronics Engineering Technology and Automotive Engineering Technology, all at National Proficiencies I and II as well as Catering and Hospitality Management at National Certificate I on the National Technical and Vocational Education and Training Qualifications Framework (NTVETQF).

The Vice-Chancellor encouraged Master Artisans aiming to hone their skills in the respective specialisations to contact the Center for Competency-Based Training and Research (CCBTR) at COLTEK for assistance to sign up for the programmes.

He was highly appreciative of government’s continued show of interest and support for UEW as well as the hard work and commitment of all staff towards the steady progress that the University is making.
