Accra, 19th June 2017: The Local Content Unit in the Petroleum Directorate of the Ministry of Energy will be visiting 12 Senior High Schools (SHS) in the Western, Central and Volta Regions from today, June 19, 2017 to sensitize students on the fundamentals of Ghana’s Energy sector with key focus on the petroleum industry.

The team will also provide students with career guidance and employment opportunities in the industry.

This is part of the Ministry’s Gender Mainstreaming in the Energy Sector Project which is aimed at increasing female participation in Ghana’s Energy Sector.

The first phase of the project focuses on a sensitization and career guidance programme in the Petroleum and Power sector at Senior High Schools across the country.

The sensitization programme takes the form of forums across selected Senior High Schools (SHS) preferably female SHS in the 10 Regions.

This is meant to whip up enthusiasm of female students and encourage them to choose courses relevant to the industry at the tertiary level.
