Industry – school collaboration

Bosch, world’s leading providers for power tools, is to partner Accra Technical Training Centre’s (ATTC) to equip students and artisans with practical and hands-on training to ensure they developed skills needed for the global market.

Mr Benjamin Ofori, Regional Sales Director for Bosch Power Tools, said the partnership with ATTC would positively impact the quality of local technical training, whilst at the same time empowering the Ghanaian youth.

“Bosch, with its global reach, experience in training, safety and development and wide range of quality power tools makes this partnership a win-win – not only for both parties but also for students who study at ATTC as well as the economy of Ghana,” he said.

Mr Ofori, who was speaking at the launch of Accra Technical Training Centre’s (ATTC) 50th anniversary celebrations, said collaboration between the two parties would ensure that Bosch provided the requisite tools to fulfil the ATTC’s vision of training skilled manpower.

Mr Ofori said the partnership had already commenced to yield results as the first Bosch Tradesman Show would come off at ATTC from 15th February to 6th March 2018 with an initial teaser on the 20th and 22nd September, 2017.

He said among several activities and announcements to be made during the Bosch Tradesman Show, there would be free hands-on training on the use of Bosch power tools on a variety of applications.

Over the period of the Show, more than 5,000 artisans under multiple professions are expected to be in attendance and certificates will be awarded to power tool users who successfully complete the training session and demonstrate their skills creditably, he said.

Whilst equipping technical students and artisans with the right knowledge and tools and empowering them to be the game changers for Ghana and the sub region, Bosch will launch a promotion to supply 5,000 artisans with 5,000 power tool packages at prices ranging from GH¢300 to GH¢3,000 from 1st November 2017 to 6th March 2018.

Mr Ofori expressed the hope that Bosch would hold these Tradesmen Shows in every region of Ghana to equip local professional and artisanal users with the right power tools and give them the ability to create products that are ready for the world market.

Mr Ernest Bediako Asare, the Principal ATTC, said the Centre had trained many professionals in responsible positions in many fields in the country.

He said the Centre was prepared to offer hands on training to give the students the necessary skills, adding that there were plans to move into competency based training in accessing the students.

Mr Asare said the collaboration with Bosch would help shape the students for the future.
