Developed by the National Government of Ghana in collaboration with PlanetOne from Dubai, the project is being executed by the consortium of P.C. Education Africa Ventures and SUMEC Complete Equipment & Engineering Company Limited.

It is expected to be completed by the end of the year 2021.

Expectations for the multiple building facilities

According to the Institute Manager, Mr. Samuel Kwashie Amegbor, upon completion, the multiple building facilities will complement instructional works, and make the mode of service delivery attractive to the unemployed youth to take up vocational education and training.

He said the upgrading would uplift the image of the school and the Biriwa Township at large and encourage the youth in the area to take advantage to acquire employable skills.

Generally, the multiple building facilities are expected to increase student enrolment at the BVTRI from 1,454 to more than 3,000.
