Leading providers of power tools, Bosch, has partnered the Accra Technical Training Institute (ATTC) to train students as part of efforts to enhance technical training and empower the youth with technical know-how.
The move also forms part of the ATTC’s 50th anniversary celebrations.
Speaking to Citi Business News at the ceremony to announce the partnership, Mr Benjy Ofori, Regional Sales Director for Power Tools, West & Central Africa said, “this institution produces the carpenters, the electricians, and the plumbers all across the country and for us what is important is we want to be able to provide the right tools, the right training, and support to ensure that the artisans we produce in Ghana today become the best artisans that can compete with any other individual coming from any country in Africa or anywhere across the world”.
He added that his outfit will provide the requisite tools to fulfill the ATTC’s vision of training skilled manpower.
He also expressed positivity in the collaboration and believes the collaboration will go a long way to equip students of ATTC even after they graduate.
“Among several activities and announcements to be made during the Bosch Tradesman Show hosted at ATTC, there will be free hands-on training on the use of Bosch power tools on a variety of applications. Over the period of the Show, more than 5,000 artisans under multiple professions are expected to be in attendance and certificates will be awarded to power tool users who successfully complete the training session and demonstrate their skills creditably.”
Whilst equipping technical students and artisans with the right knowledge and tools and empowering them to be the game changers for Ghana and the sub-region, Bosch will launch a promotion which will commence from 1st November 2017 to 6th March 2018 to supply 5,000 artisans with 5,000 power tool packages, ranging from GH¢300 to GH¢3,000.
Prior to establishing its Ghana office, Robert Bosch had a successful history in the supply of power tools to professional users in Ghana through a number of partners.
Additionally, since 2016, Bosch, has managed to engage even further with its end users by developing and tailoring its products and services to suit the local market.
ATTC has provided both theoretical and practical training for the trades, business, industry and other occupations since it was instituted.
