 A 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 work attempts to appraise the contributions of this often
neglected but yet inevitable educational sector in order to make significant
progress in terms of national economy development and job creation.
