Koforidua Technical University Institutional Case Study
This study focuses on changes to the delivery of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) at Koforidua Technical University (KTU) based in the Eastern Region, Ghana as a result its partnership with the Commonwealth of Learning's (COL). It highlights the activities and impact of KTU’s Flexible Skills Development (FSD) programme, under the Innovation in Vocational Education and Skills Training (INVEST) Africa partnership, implemented by KTU’s Institute of Open and Distance Learning (IODL). INVEST Africa is based on COL’s belief in the positive impact of the Flexible and Blended (FaB) approach in expanding the scope and quality of technical and vocational skills development in TVET institutions. The programme supports institutional leadership to integrate appropriate technologies in delivering flexible and blended (FaB) approaches to learning and teaching. COL specifically supports TVET institutions with growing strategic, organisational, infrastructural and pedagogical capacity to expand access to quality learning and skills development opportunities, Isaacs and Mead-Richardson (2012). // This case study provides a Value for Money (VfM) analysis that reviews COL’s inputs and support to KTU during the development and continued implementation of the FSD model, in relation to the active outcomes.
