Investment in TVET, the surest bet to securing the future of job


Head of Partnership and Resource Mobilization Unit at the Technical Vocational Education and Training, T-VET, Kojo Adu is making a compelling case for consistent investments into Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) as it holds the key to securing job creation for future generations.

According to Kojo, TVET equips individuals with critical skills that are highly sought after in various industries across the world and can lead to fulfilling careers.

Additionally, it enables learners to gain practical experience through hands-on training and apprenticeships that increase their employability. Kojo’s argument suggests that investing in TVET is a wise choice towards building a sustainable economy while creating meaningful job opportunities for upcoming generations.

He was speaking at a roundtable organized by the Enterprise Bureau under the theme: “Future of Work: The Megatrends of Job Creation.”

He believes that TVET goes beyond specific trade, rather fostering problem solving and critical thinking skills, and encourage a shift in perception towards recognizing it as a strategic choice rather than an alternative.

He called for collaborative efforts among policy makers and industry leaders to invest in and enhance TVET for a workforce well prepared for the future of work.

As the world rapidly changes due to technological advancements, globalization, and social and economic shifts, the future of work is undoubtedly one of the most critical topics for discussion. Enterprise Bureau curated the roundtable event to explore the impact of Technology, Entrepreneurship, Education, Infrastructure and Globalization on job creation in Africa. EB’s goal is to provide a detailed analysis of the African job market and offer insights into investing in the future of work.

Enterprise Bureau remains committed to providing insights to the stakeholders of the startup ecosystem in Africa to enable them make informed business decisions.
