The Design & Technology Institute (DTI) has partnered with the International Finance Corporation (IFC) to establish three Programme Advisory Committees (PACs) aimed at producing industry-ready students in the TVET sector. This is the first time a TVET institution in Ghana has established industry-academia PACs, bridging the gap between industry and academia.
According to the information, the PACs will advise DTI on curriculum development, ensure quality standards, enhance student experience, and improve employment opportunities for learners. The committees consist of industry experts and will focus on improving the Welding and Fabrication, Design Innovation, and Entrepreneurship programmes.
The DTI hopes that the PACs will position it as a center of excellence in TVET training in Ghana, providing learners with relevant skills and knowledge to meet industry needs. The launch of the committees has been welcomed by industry experts, who see this as an opportunity to invest in the younger generation and create a better future for the nation.
