2nd edition of Joseph Bunyan Memorial TVET lectures held

The Anomabo chapter of the Boys and Girls Club of Ghana, a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) and education initiative, on Friday, September 30, 2022, organized the second edition of the Joseph Benjamin Bunyan Technical Vocational and Education Training (TVET) lectures at Anomabo with a call on basic school teachers to introduce and promote the teaching and learning of the Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) to their pupils at the early stages.

This, according to the Principal of the Briwa Technical Institute (BTI), formerly Vocational Training and Rehabilitation Institute (NVTI) Briwa, would, among others, help the pupils to identify their God-given talents earlier for the teachers to nurture them.

“We need to, as teachers, nurture the kids to become problem solvers in future and in so doing we must all come together to promote the STEM education…. let’s start teaching them at their tender ages for them to develop the love for the subjects so that they [pupils] do not veer from the subjects when growing”, Engineer Samuel Kwashie Amegbor explained.

He addressed the participants, made up of basic school heads and Basic Design and Technology (BDT) teachers from Anomabo and Yamoransa circuits in the Mfantseman Municipality of the Central Region (CR), at the memorial lecture as the main speaker.

Ing. Kwashie Amegbor, speaking under the theme, “STEM Education: The Catalyst for Industrial Revolution in the 21st Century”, asserted strongly that the world had moved from the industry 1.0 era to 4.0, which was all about technology, innovations and industrialization and thus all must adjust themselves to move along with the revolution.

He then called on parents to take advantage of the free TVET education to enrol their children into technical and vocational institutions and urged the government to retool the TVET institutions to enhance practicals to help the institutions achieve their mandates and goals.

According to the Club’s Executive director, Isaac Kweku Quainoo, the lecture was organized in memory of the late Joseph Benjamin Bunyan, who was, before his demise, the TVET coordinator at the Municipal’s Education directorate.
He said the lecture had been instituted to honour his tremendous support and unflinching promotion of TVET education in the municipality when he was alive.

Panellists for the presentation were Mr Alfred Essel Koomson, a Mathematics tutor at Kwegyir Aggrey Senior High Technical School (KASHTS), Mr Ebenezer Asiedu, head of Science department, KASHTS, Madam Catherine Fletcher, BTI fashion and designing technology department head and Mr John Kodie Martey, head of electrical engineering technology department head, BTI.

They all emphasized the need, as a country, to prioritize the study of STEM, TVET and industrialization.
