Many University Graduates were Trained for Jobs that do Not Exist Hence the High unemployment Rate.

 

 

Minister for Education lamented on the idea that, Many University Graduates were Trained for Jobs that do Not in the actual sense exist in the country or  elsewhere. This is a challenging issue he thinks is the primary agent of the high unemployment rate on this continent.

 

Substantive Minister for Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum asserted that, Universities in the country are running many courses that are irrelevant in the job market. Due to this injustice in our educational System, the unemployment rate among university graduates kept on skyrocketing every now and then.

 

 

He said if schools are training students for jobs that do not exist, subsequently, there will be no jobs avenue for them.

The Minister made those pronouncement at the annual new year program of University of Ghana.

Some students also choose that aspect as a cheap mechanism to go to University.

 

According to one lecture at University of Ghana,  he does not believe the unemployment rate is the faults of the Universities. He mentioned that, government must be blamed. He said, yes! many programmes are pooping up in the various Universities because there is weak correlation between government and the universities.

 

Financially, most public universities are handicapped. Meanwhile, they have to pay their lectures and run other affairs of the school. Due to this, they must also develop a strategic plan to ensure the continual running of the institutions. He believes that, if nothing is done to arrest this sooner than later, it will rather escalate with high exacerbating power.
