The Government has been commended for including the Technical, Vocational Education and Training (TVET) schools in the Free Senior High School Policy to widen the net for children interested in technical education to also benefit.
As part of efforts to make formal technical training more accessible, the Government had expanded the Free SHS Policy to include 186 TVET institutions across the country.
Madam Rebecca Quayson, a trader and mother, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency, said she had been able to send her daughter, Janet Badu, to the Akwatia Technical Institute, where she was doing well as a form one student.
She said but for the implementation of the Free TVET she would have been saddled with an enormous financial burden of having to pay her child’s school fees.
"Last year 2020/2021 my elderly son could not be enrolled at the technical institute because of lack of school fees,” she said.
Madam Quayson commended the Akufo-Addo-led Administration for the initiative to support poor families to also give their children higher education.
