ABOUT US

The Ghana Skills Development Initiative (GSDI) is a project assisted by the German Government via the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit, GIZ GmbH, and implemented in cooperation with the Council for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (COTVET).

GSDI III

  • pursues the objective of providing demand-driven training to the target group of job-seeking youth, apprentices, workers and owners of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) especially in the informal and agricultural sector.
  • supports COTVET’s innovative approach to introduce competency-based training (CBT) standards and collaborative training models that combine both workplace-based training and school-based training modules at selected TVET providers.
  • specifically seeks to improve the quality of the traditional apprenticeship system and, therefore, to enhance skills and qualifications.

 

GSDI III follows the well-established multi-level approach within four intervention areas:

  • Improvement of the framework conditions and support to TVET policy coordination
  • Strengthening of local business actors in TVET
  • Expansion of CBT approaches
  • Implementation of the developed courses

 

GSDI III is implemented in the following regions:

  • Greater Accra Region
  • Northern Region
  • Volta Region
