The Savannah Accelerated Development Authority (SADA) in partnership with the Bolgatanga Polytechnic have embarked on a project aimed at equipping students with the requisite skills and attitudes to meet the demands of industry.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of SADA, Mr Charles Abugre, in an address to the gathering at the Fifth Matriculation of the Bolgatanga Polytechnic, who announced this, said other Polytechnics in the SADA region would also benefit from the partnership.

The partnership, the CEO said, could also accelerate the transformational development of the Northern Ecological Zones, which was very critical to the nation’s development.

He said one of the possible areas SADA and the Polytechnics could start with, could be to commission a research of joint interests that would solve practical problems and present sustainable solutions for the development of agriculture and agro-business, manufacturing, housing, and tourism.

The CEO said Technical and Engineering vocations were pillars of development and SADA and the Polytechnics could explore the possibility of exchange  programmes with students and lecturers in countries such as Germany, China, Israel and Brazil, which were more advanced in such programmes.

“We could also investigate the possibility of developing graduate entrepreneurship programmes for post- national service personnel to mentor and motivate them to set up their own SMEs,” he said.

“They should also explore financial options for instituting scholarship schemes for students and faculty members in critical areas, including Engineering, Urban Planning, Vocational and Technical Education among others.
