Welcome To GEBSS

In Ghana, about 250,000 youth join the labour force annually; over 30% of this population have tertiary education. This makes over 70,000 graduates per annum joining the labour force. Out of this figure, only about 5,000 are employed by the formal sector; whilst the rest survive in the informal sector or remain unemployed.

Attempts to promote the growth of SME’s to absorb labour have not yielded the desired result due to several factors including high interest rates, weak and unreliable infrastructure, capacity of the Ghanaian economy to create sustainable jobs, etc.

The educational system continues to produce graduates whose training and aspirations do not match the requirements of modern industry.
