building of an innovation culture with a primary focus of developing the formal and informal sectors.

The National Vocational Training Institute (NVTI) is advocating the building of an innovation culture with a primary focus of developing the formal and informal sectors.
‘’The development of downstream markets are the catalysts for formal and informal sectors of every nation, so we need to cultivate an environment for it’’
Mawusi Nudekor Awity, Executive Director of NVTI, said her outfit’s capacities must be strengthened for national policies to be implemented in the institute to develop the sector.
‘’In markets which have been characterised by rapid and better ways of operating, one of the most prized corporate attributes is innovation,’’ she noted.
Awity said the informal sector particularly has been plagued by unequal access to resources which has subjected it to underdevelopment.
She noted that some other marketing and entrepreneurial challenges the institute and informal sector face, are the unavailability of modern tools and equipment, logistics and lack of sufficient funding to operate with.
‘’NVTI is working towards a national policy strategy which will include resource mobilisation and donor partnership from individuals to revamp the institute in channelling innovative development of the informal sector,’’ she added.
Awity said the institute is working towards setting standards for training, testing and certifying all candidates of both school based and workshop based apprenticeship, while also providing re-training for industry workers for all sectors of the economy.
The institute has provided training to about 34 vocational institutes with employable skills since its establishment.
