You are on the right page if you are looking for category A technical and vocational (TVET) schools in Ghana. The hunt for Ghana’s best technical and vocational schools is now the day’s talk. All prospective Junior High School graduates aspire to attend the best senior high schools, technical and vocational schools in Ghana.
It is also true that parents want the best for their children’s future. Therefore the search for good technical and vocational schools is usually done before the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) each year.
Senior High Schools in Ghana are categorized into category A Schools, Category B Schools, Category C Schools, Category D Schools in Ghana, Category E Schools, and Category F Schools. Those who perform better get good job opportunities after school. Also, check the list of category A schools in the Ashanti region.
What criteria are used to group TVET in Ghana?
As we have already discussed in our previous post, the selection and grouping of the various senior high, technical, and vocational schools are based on the following;
Academic performance at WASSCE: It is undeniable that category A technical and vocational schools perform better academically than the other categories. Their overall performance in the West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) is excellent. When a technical and vocational school performs consistently better in WASSCE, the chances of getting into the category A position is high.
School achievement: Many technical and vocational schools also got into category A because of their accomplishments. The achievements may include but are not limited to Awards, Trophies, etc. The awards can be those obtained from a quiz competition or debates such as the National Maths and Science Quiz competition.
Infrastructure and facilities: School infrastructure and facilities may not directly impact the SHS category grouping. However, technical and vocational schools with well-furnished computer and science laboratories perform well in the long run due to practical hands-on activities. It is, therefore, no surprise that all category A schools are well-furnished with infrastructure and other facilities that aid teaching and learning.
If you prefer to enjoy technical and senior high education, consider enrolling your ward in Spiritan Senior High Technical School. The school is fast rising academically since it was absorbed into the public education system.
Age of School: The age of the school also affects its ranking. Most category A technical and vocational schools have been around for quite some time. Alums of these schools contribute massively to the upliftment, including infrastructural developments.
These are among the essential ranking factors the Computerised School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) and the Ghana Education Service (GES) use to rank technical and vocational schools and senior high schools in Ghana.
This article presents the complete list of technical and vocational schools that have moved the tides to enlist their names as category A schools in Ghana.
