Dr. Richmond Yeboah, a Development and Governance Analyst with the Romy Consultancy Group and a lecturer at Cape Coast Technical University, has commended the Ghanaian government for its ambitious education reform initiatives. According to Dr. Yeboah, these reforms have significantly improved access to high-quality education in Ghana.

Dr. Yeboah cited data indicating an increase in enrollment at all levels of education, as well as improvements in learning outcomes, as evidence of the government’s success. He specifically praised the introduction of the Free Senior High School programme, the expansion of TVET and STEM programmes, and the comprehensive national teacher education reforms, which prioritize collaborative, student-centred learning.

Dr. Yeboah also lauded the Education Minister, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, for his ingenuity in introducing the pre-engineering programme for non-Science students. This programme allows Business, General, and Visual Arts students who desire to become engineers to complete a one-year pre-engineering programme at the University of Mines and Technology and the Pentecost University before admission into tertiary engineering programmes.

Dr. Yeboah described the introduction of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) programmes as another transformative initiative. He noted that all technical universities and institutions now have world-class laboratories that meet industry standards, with Amatrol Labs providing hands-on skill training.

Dr. Yeboah emphasized the importance of the TVET sector in Ghana’s industrialization strategy, stating that it provides the practical skills required for success. He also expressed hope that the newly established state-of-the-art TVET centres in some regions would provide young people with employable skills, enhancing their livelihoods and creating wealth.

Dr. Yeboah commended the government and the Education Minister for their commitment to transforming education in Ghana and responding to the needs of industry players to promote competitiveness in the market sphere.
