Sector Skills Bodies Stakeholders Meeting


GSDI III facilitated an initial meeting with stakeholders from Construction, Agriculture and Agribusiness and Tourism sectors to dialogue and define the boundaries of each sector towards the establishment sector skills bodies.
As part of the “Strategic Plan for TVET Transformation 2018-2022”, the Council for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (COTVET)
aims to improve the participation of the industry in the TVET training system by the establishment of sector skills bodies to advise and participate in the training regime. GSDI III is supporting COTVET in this regard by supporting the piloting of two sector skills bodies.

The international Labour Organisation (ILO) launched the SKILLUP project in Ghana in February 2019 and seeks to support the piloting of sector skills bodies. GSDI III cooperates with ILO to harness their competence in this area. Under this collaboration, GSDI will support the establishment of a sector skills body for construction whilst ILO will support that for Tourism, and together, GSDI III and ILO support the sector skills body for agriculture and agribusiness.
