The Minister for Education has announced plans to upgrade the Senior High School certificate into a National Diploma certificate which can allow graduates gain employment after completion of their programmes
The Minister said it is unfair for young people in the country to be forced to complete University before being eligible for employment in the country.
Speaking at the 2019 Danquah Institute Leadership lecture under the theme: “World Class Education and Imperative for the Next Generation of Leaders,” Matthew Opoku Prempeh said a new curriculum for Junior High Schools in the country will see JHS graduates completing with National Higher Diplomas while qualified SHS graduates will be awarded with National Diplomas.
He noted that such an upgrade for their qualification will make the graduates more relevant and not having to necessarily obtain University education to be qualified for employment in the country.
Mathew Opoku Prempeh further advocated for adequate training for Ghanaian students to make them technologically savvy.
He said such a trait will make Ghanaian graduates compete favorably with their counterparts from other parts of the world.
