Ghana : AVN and Bolgatanga Polytechnic University to collaborate on adapted housing

October 16th last, the Department of Construction Techniques and Civil Engineering of Bolgatanga Polytechnic and AVN-Ghana signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to define and implement a pilot dual curriculum (theory and practice) for the training of construction technicians and the wider mobilisation of the entire adapted housing sector.

The first stages of this agreement involve the creation of a collaborative framework between the Polytechnic and AVN to identify the responsibilities and working methods of each party and to promote a multi-actor network of training involving not only the students, teachers, and Trainer Masons, but also experts in social entrepreneurship and other actors of the sustainable construction sector. A relevant action and fund-raising plan has been defined.

The Bolgatanga Polytechnic University is the first institution to have entered into such a technical agreement with AVN.
