The well-being of every staff/student/apprentice is very crucial to the productivity of his/her organisation. Thus as part of the obligation of the Ghana Skills Development Initiative, we organised a workshop dubbed: Mainstreaming Health and Wellbeing into Schools and Apprenceship Training in Northern Ghana.
In addition to an information meeting, two days workshop for Training Providers and two days workshop for Trade Associations, a public health screening took place in a TVET school in Tamale.
The Council for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (COTVET) with support from the Ghana Skills Development Initiative (GSDI) has developed a Gender Strategy to govern the operations of TVET in the Council and its stakeholders.
On 10th March 2014 GSDI in cooperation with GIZ's "Employee Wellbeing Programme (EWP)" organised an information meeting in Tamale.
