About 400 people in Bawku to benefit from National Apprenticed Programme free of charge

About 400 people are benefiting from the National Apprenticed Programme in the Bawku Municipality, Garu-Tempane and the Bawku West districts.

The programme is aimed at providing vocational training for the youth to enable them acquire skills for employment.

Mr Mahamma  Ayariga,  the Deputy Minister of Education, said this when he launched the programme and donated 120 sewing machines, 18 electrical equipment, 100 automobile machines and 100 hair driers on behalf of the Council for Vocational and Technical Institutes to the assemblies at the weekend in Bawku.

Mr Ayariga said it was to show the government’s commitment to generate more human resources for the country through technical and vocational programme.

He said the government had seen the need to revamp the vocational and technical programme because it was the only area that could promote rapid development.

Mr Abduliah Musah, the Municipal Chief Executive for Bawku Municipal, appealed to the beneficiaries to make good use of the opportunity because it was going to help them transform their lives and their communities.

The District Chief Executive for the Garu-Tempane district, Mr David Adakurugu, said the interventions were part of the Better Ghana Agenda and they could only feel it when they acquired skills from their training.

Mr Adakurugu said aside the training tools, the government was going to pay for the training cost.
