Description

The Accra Technical Training Centre (ATTC) is a vocational / technical co-educational institution located at Kokomlemle in Accra.

The ATTC was conceived as a joint project by the Governments of Ghana and Canada “… To provide theoretical and practical instruction for the occupations as may be required from time to time”. Thus, from its cradle it was conceived as training institution to train skilled manpower for Ghana’s industrial requirements, and it marked the first major Canadian support to Ghana in the field of technical education and training.

The beginnings of the Accra Technical Training Centre dates back to the early 1960’s when one Mr. Arnold Doyle, the Director of Vocational and Technical Education or the Canadian Province of Saskatchewan conducted a feasibility study for the establishment of a technical school in Ghana by the then Canadian External Aid Office, now Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). Mr. Doyle became the Canadian Co-ordinator for the project when the Canadian Government commissioned the Canadian Province of Saskatchewan to implement the ATTC project

The Ghanaian counterpart to Mr. Doyle was Mr. Frank Hutchful who was then Ghana’s Director of Apprenticeship and Duty Chief Technical Education Officer.

Under the aegis of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Governments of Ghana and Canada, construction of the Centre commenced in 1964. The External Aid Department provided architectural services and all constructional materials. In addition, nearly all the instructional equipment and furniture and the initial consumable training materials were provided under the Agreement.
