Dep. Minister, TVET Commissioner tour examination centres

The Deputy Minister for Education in charge of Technical, Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Mrs Gifty Twum Ampofo and the Commissioner for TVET, Dr Fred Kyei Asamoah, last week, toured some selected TVET institutions, which are serving as centres for the ongoing 2021 May/June Certificate II Core Examination.

The tour was aimed at ascertaining how the examination was being conducted and also wish the candidates well.

The centres visited included the Accra Technical Training Centre, at Kokomlemle, Dabokpa Technical Institute, Tamale Technical Institute, Walewale Technical Institute, St. Bernadette, Navrongo Technical Institute and Bolgatanga Technical Institute.

Speaking to journalists after the tour, Mrs Ampofo indicated that, “this assessment has been designed to ensure that students’ transition to the world of work or pursue higher academic laurels is seamless”. 

She said that the “government has taken the necessary steps to ensure that their certification is recognised by both industry and institutions of higher learning”.

Dr Asamoah said the conduct of the examination was so far satisfactory, and assured the general public that the commission had taken enough precautionary measures to ensure the sanctity and integrity of the examinations.

He urged the candidates to work hard and ensure that they passed the examination so that the huge investment being made by the government and other stakeholders in their education is not wasted.

Dr Asamoah said if the candidates pass their examinations they would not only make their families proud but they could also support the nation’s development by joining the labour force to enhance productivity.

Students in TVET institutions nationwide began writing their May/June Certificate II Core Exams from September 6, 2021, and were expected to complete on Monday.

Annually, the May/June Certificate II Core Exams is administered to all eligible TVET learners across the country by the Commission for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (CTVET).

The examinable subjects are Mathematics, Integrated Science, English Language, Social Studies and Entrepreneurship.

The examination will enable the learners to either progress to Technical Universities (including other Tertiary Institutions/Universities) or transition to the world of work.
