The training programme aimed at equipping workers with the skills required to manage top-tier quality assurance systems in Ghana’s apparel industry. It covered a wide range of topics from the role of quality supervisors, guidelines to measure a garment, quality control, inspection procedures to quality management systems. It was attended by industry middle management, factory workers as well as people who had no prior industry experience.
Both factory workers and beginners have been equipped with practical skills, which will make them more impactful at their jobs and help become efficient quality control officers for the apparel industry in Ghana. We ensured that the training sessions were interactive with a focus on mass production, which is also a new topic for the participants."Wasula Alahakoon, GIZ Trainer
Before the training, I thought quality standard was based on the product. But through this training, I have learnt that standard is based on customers’ needs and requirements. It is key when it comes to quality control."Prince Boateng, Training participant
This training is an opportunity to close the knowledge skills gaps in the industry. At the end of it all, we want to see you finding new jobs where you can practise your new skills."Onoma Asiedu National Project Officer, ILO Productivity Ecosystems for Decent Work Ghana
