GROHE and ATTC partner to train plumbers to address industry deficit

Christopher Penney, Head of the GROHE Installer Vocational Training and Education (GIVE) Program, an initiative by the plumbing industry leader GROHE, which aims to equip young people with the skills and knowledge needed for the plumbing industry, is excited about the inauguration of Ghana leading GIVE training facility in Accra.

The state-of-the-art facility, which was built in collaboration with the Accra Technical Training Center, aims to host Ghanaian youth and train them for successful plumbing careers in the plumbing industry, while improving the skills of existing craftsmen in the field.

As part of the GIVE program, GROHE supports plumbing schools in creating a state-of-the-art training framework by setting up modern training facilities as well as providing learning material and experienced technical trainers.

Christopher Penney, Head of GIVE Program, LIXIL EMENA, said at the event that GIVE is not only aiming to provide talented young people with the skills needed for the plumbing industry, but also to help many young people lead better lives.

“The GIVE program will provide an opportunity to consolidate all of our professional training efforts while giving many young people access to a better life. To the extent that GIVE is geared towards training young people for the plumbing industry, it is also a means by which the lives of many socially disadvantaged people in society in several parts of the world are positively influenced. As the name of the program suggests, for us at GROHE it is of vital importance to give something back to society, ”he said.

For his part, Mr. Arko Dometey, Director of the Accra Technical Training Center (ATTC), praised GROHE for the training facility and described it as groundbreaking for technical and professional education and training (TVET) in Ghana.

According to him, the training facility would play a crucial role in the theoretical and practical training of existing and prospective plumbers that will be needed from time to time.

“It is a proven fact that having well-equipped training facilities with the right programs is key to attracting and retaining a lot of talent in the plumbing industry. We are therefore confident that this training facility will make a major contribution to ensuring that a large number of existing and prospective plumbers in Ghana come into contact with the latest trends and innovations in the plumbing industry, ” he said.
