Mr Darkwahsaid currently, 186TVET institutions fairly and strategically located across the country were ready to run the Free TVET system up to certificate II level.

He explained that all TVET providing institutions which used to be under 19 ministries had been realigned to the Ghana TVET Service under the Ministry of Education and had been included in this academic year’s Computerised School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) for the Junior High School graduates.

The 187,542 are expected to follow the laid down process to do the self-placement within the shortest possible time before the system is shut down or closed.
