Chinese, Ghanaian Vocational Colleges Set up Campus to Cultivate Talent


A Chinese vocational college and a Ghanaian technical university jointly announced on May 20 to set up a campus in Kumasi, the second-largest city in Ghana, to help cultivate more vocational talent in the West African country.

China’s Rizhao Polytechni­c, together with the Kumasi Technical University (KSTU) where the new campus will be located, will help further boost bilateral exchanges in the vocational education.

Speaking at the signing ceremony of the project, Osei Wusu Achaw, the vice-chancellor of KSTU, indicated that the signing will pave the way for the establishm­ent of the campus to extend Ghana’s vocational education in many more discipline­s and offer opportunit­ies to more Ghanaian students to receive quality education.

Describing technical and vocational education as the bedrock of Ghana’s industrial­ization agenda, Tina Abrefa Gyan, deputy director-general of the Ghanaian Education Ministry’s commission for technical and vocational education and training, said the Ghanaian government has made a massive investment in the area, and is upgrading a number of technical universiti­es and institutes with the constructi­on of workshops and installati­on of equipment for the use of these institutio­ns.
