Entrepreneurship Training for Vocational Training & Rehabilitation Centre (VTRC), Biriwa
On Friday, 14 October, 2011, the Entrepreneurship Training for Vocational Training & Rehabilitation Centre (VTRC) went very well. The Ghana team had a very fruitful interaction with 381 and 100 first and forth year students respectively. We enjoyed maximum staff corporation especially from the School Guidance and Counselling Co-ordinators; Mr Edem Agbanyo and Ms. Abigail Melomey. The programme was organised in collaboration with Abusua Foundation. The GETAhead was very useful in the training and some of the topics covered were:Starting and Growing a Business, Raising funds for Entrepreneurship Ventures and Marketing and Customer Management.
The open forum saw participants suggesting so many youth entrepreneurial ventures that can be very viable during and after their vocational training. Some of the suggested ventures were: Home services such as car washing, laundry and gardening services. Again during this time, participants were very impressed to have received such a training at no cost thereby commending the efforts of Commonwealth Youth Programme and ILO for indirectly giving them the training. As part of the promotion of Youth Entrepreneurship, all training materials were made available for the participants. In addition, Certificate of participation were issued by Abusua Foundation.
