The school in Takoradi is all female. The Institute offers courses in Dressmaking, Tailoring, Cookery, Batik Tie Dye and Cake Decoration.
The duration of all courses is 3 years with an additional 1 year for all who seek to have GES Certificate II. Cake Decoration and Batik Tie Dye are six months on a strict proficiency level.
The number of trainees for the first half of 2017 was 85.
As a requirement of the National VTI, trainees after their three years of practical training would be attached to an industry to have hands-on practical experience for the period of 12weeks. Therefore, the institute has liaised with some industries within the metropolis and beyond to place students in their catering or dress making departments for the students to undertake this special program in their companies. Follow ups made on our trainees placed in these industries prove that attaches from the YMCA Vocational Training Institute are always the best and that the department heads of these industries do give them high recommendations.
