AmaliTech signed an MOU with GCTU on 7th September 2022 to cooperate in the areas of providing training, internship opportunities, and job opportunities for the students and graduates of GCTU. Both parties agreed to partner in a variety of joint professional, educational, and industrial activities.
Present for the MOU signing were Mr. Matthew Opoku Darkwa (Director of Operations, AmaliTech), Ms. Lois Young (Corporate Social Responsibility Team Lead, AmaliTech), Professor Emmanuel Ohene Afoakwa (VC, GCTU), Professor Robert Ebo Hinson (Pro-VC, GCTU), Mr. Michael Appiah (J. Assistant Registrar, GCTU), Mr. Ahmed Antwi-Boampong (the Head of the Industrial Liaison Office, GCTU), Mr. Nii Adotei Abrahams (the Registrar, GCTU), Dr. Nusrat-Jahan Abubakar (The Director of University Relations, GCTU), and the liaison office team.
According to Mr. Boampong, AmaliTech was first sighted on the campus of Takoradi Technical University (TTU) while his office was there on an official assignment. It immediately caught their attention and so they started investigating what they were about. Having had some background information, they initiated contact concerning a partnership.
AmaliTech’s Director of Operations, Mr. Matthew Opoku Darkwa, explained what AmaliTech has been doing since its establishment in Ghana in 2019, in recruiting, training, and offering various employment pathways to Ghanaian graduates. “We do recruitment of graduates with mainly Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) backgrounds, and once we find the talent, we train them for a period of three to six months. After the training, we look for employment opportunities for them in our service centre which is our bread and butter”, the Director of Operations said.
Mr. Opoku Darkwa emphasized that the training element is not academic but practical hands-on training.
He also mentioned that all their clients are international, with the majority of them in Europe, and what they do for them mainly is software development, software testing, data science, and sometimes research.
