Abstract

 

 Technical education, as entrenched in the Nigerian National Policy on Education, is concerned with qualitative technological human resources development directed towards a national pool of skilled and self-reliant craftsmen, technicians and technologists in technical and vocational fields. The two key phrases, which readily come to mind in this type of education, are competency-based skill-acquisition and sound scientific knowledge. In order to cope with the requirements of fast developing economy, to gear up employment generation and meet the challenges of globalization, it was absolutely imperative to realign Technical and Vocational Education system in the country to cater for these requirements. This paper attempts to appraise the role of vocational and technical education in the creation of job opportunities in Nigeria.

 

 

CHAPTER ONE

 

1.1     Background of the Study

 Technical education facilitates the acquisition of practical and applied skills as well as basic scientific knowledge, it is therefore a planned program of courses and learning experiences that begins with exploration of career options, supports basic academic and life skills, and enables achievement of high academic standards, leadership, preparation for industry-defined work, and advanced and continuing education (CTE, 2009). Nuru (2007) indicated that changes in a country’s economy is required to prepare young people for the jobs of the future and technical and vocational education have important roles to play in this process. Technical and vocational education has been an integral part of national development. According to Van Ark (1992) the Dutch school system is said to pay attention to “high standards in mathematics and the provision of technical education at ages 14-16 for a third of all pupils, and widespread vocational education at 16 +. Unfortunately, Nigeria does not seem to give technical and vocational education the attention they deserve and this appears to be one of the reasons for rising unemployment and poverty in the society. May (2006) also posits that the neglect of technical education in the area of adequate personnel, financial support and facilities to encourage technical and vocational education are robbing the nation of the contribution their graduates would make in the economy. Furthermore, Asogwa and Diogu (2007) maintained that there is an urgent need for the people’s attention to be redirected towards self-reliant and sustainable means of livelihood which technical education provides. This research work therefore brings to the fore some salient contributions this neglected education sector can make in Nigeria economic development by producing labour market ready graduates.
