Ghana’s Vice President Dr. Mahammudu Bawumia has stated that there is a paradigm shift in the world now now as the world is moving away from school school certificate to skills.
According to him, there is a surge in preference for skills to certificate globally.
Bawumia explained that the country’s growth is dependent on the combination of its human resources and technology.
“Today, in the world, we are seeing a movement away from a world of certificate to a world of skills. The certificate only matters fundamentally in this new world if they allow you to perform certain skills or you bring certain skills with it.”
He made this known while speaking at the launch of the Ghana Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Service at Accra Technical Training Center.
The event, which was held on Tuesday, was under the theme, “Stirring Ghana’s industrialization drive through skill acquisition for national development.”
