In the quest to find solution to the growing unemployment situation in the country, management of Jocelyn Fit, a Koforidua based Fashion Cake and decor training centre has launched a passionate appeal to the National Vocational Training Institute to give the centre the accreditation to run certificate programmes.
Speaking at the centre’s 4th graduation ceremony held in Koforidua, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mrs Joyce Pechi-Anim, hinted that graduands would effectively and efficiently be recognised if the centre is accredited.
She noted that her outfit’s contribution is to complement the mission of NVITI, which is to provide demand-driven employable skills and enhance the income generating capacities of basic and secondary school leavers, and other persons through competency-based Apprenticeship, Master craftsmanship, Testing and Career development.
Jocelyn Fit assists youths to gain practical experience in fashion designing, decoration, bakery, confectionery courses and other programs in their chosen career path to provide skills and training to the youths to be self-independent.
Mrs. Joyce Pechi-Anim appealed to the youth, especially those with low level of education, to enrol in the practical programs and also take skills and training seriously, as it plays a vital role in supporting economic growth and development at both the individual and community level.
The Eastern Regional Director of National Youth Authority (NYA), Mrs. Marian Mansa Minah commended Madam Joyce Pechi-Anim for providing skills training for the youth.
Mrs. Marian Mansa urged the unemployed youth to enrol in the various entrepreneurial programs.
She stated that NYA is mainly focused on its mandate to coordinate and facilitate youth empowerment activities in Ghana to ensure development of the Ghanaian youth as a whole.
