The Council for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (COTVET) is a national body set up by an Act of Parliament of the Republic of Ghana (Act 718 of 2006) to coordinate and oversee all aspects of Technical and Vocational Education and Training in the country. It is also to formulate national policies on skills development across pre-tertiary and tertiary levels of education, in both the formal and informal sectors.
