CEO of New Start For Artisans and Technicians Movement in the Brong Ahafo Region, Mr. Boahen Kofi Philip has said government has not done much to improve technical education in the country.

Mr. Kofi Philip speaking in an exclusive interview with Kofi Oppong Kyekyeku said most of the few technical/vocational institutions in the country lack the required tools needed by the students to demonstrate their practical ability.

He asserted that Technical Schools that has been mingled with Senior High Schools is not the right approach.

“Government’s effort towards technical education is not up to scratch. We can make technical education attractive if it is separated from the Senior High Schools. Technical/Secondary Schools being combined is not the best. Some of these teachers at the Senior High Schools influence the students’ decision to offer technical education. There is the need for government to create more technical schools which will be autonomous.

“Even practical tools that some of the institutions will use is a problem. I think we have to contribute more to improve technical education in the country,” Mr. Boahen Kofi Philip stated.

He observed that technical students sometimes are being ridiculed by their fellow students who are in the combined Technical/Senior High Schools. According to him, that has caused the reduction of students offering technical education in Ghana.
