Sector Skills Strategy

Ghana: Construction Sector

The Ghana Construction Sector Skills Body (SSB) has developed its skills strategy to facilitate the integration of skills development into sector development policies, so as to ensure that the supply of skills is tailored not only to meet the skills demand of the sector, but also to engineer the necessary growth in productivity and capability, which when sustained will produce sustained decent employment. It builds on the sector’s vision of a well-maintained, integrated, cost effective, safe and sustainable built environment responsive to the needs of users, supporting growth, poverty reduction and improved quality of life in Ghana. The strategy will also ensure that TVET can effectively underpin any future regulation of the workforce by ensuring that clear and robust pathways exist in which to enter and progress within the construction sector and that qualifications reflect the skills, knowledge and competence that is required to work in the sector safely and effectively.
