4. BRIEF HISTORY OF INSTITUTE
Akwatia Technical Institute was originally a Trade Training Centre (TTC) established by Consolidated African Selection Trust (CAST), a company which was prospecting for diamonds.
The centre was a contribution to the Independence Monument appeal fund and was opened on 28th February, 1958 by the Hon. C.T. Nyalander, then Minister of Education.
The centre was used to train only boys in the following:-
i. Apprentices recruited in Mechanical, Automobile and Electrical Engineering Programmes
ii. Graduates from Universities who were offered permanent or Vocational employment in the Company.
The initial intake for the Institute at that time was Twenty (20) apprentices only for a year and these trainees were trained for a period of five (5) years to become Journeymen ready to be absorbed in the Company’s Workshop. At the end of the training the successful apprentices were awarded National Apprenticeship Certificate and the brilliant ones were registered to write City and Guilds of London Institute Intermediate Examination.
In 1975 the Government of Ghana took over the centre and re-named it Akwatia Technical Institute. When the government took over it changed the duration of training from five (5) years to Three (3) years and also introduced Block laying and Concreting Craft alongside the existing programmes
When the government of Ghana took over he put up only (1) Two (2) storey building to be used as classroom block in order to increase the student intake. At the moment the student population is about Four Hundred (400) including Eight (8) girls with Forty (40) Teaching Staff and Forty-Two (42) Non- Teaching Staff.
