There is rapid transformation of the economics of the developed countries of the world-in the last two decades. This has resulted in global economic crisis affecting both the developing and underdeveloped countries of the world. The erratic changes have been creating new demands for more adaptable, multi-skilled and creative labour. To meet the demands, it has become necessary to reduce the gap between academic education and vocational education; to develop competence-based curriculum development mechanism; to strengthen the co-operation between education authorities, government/employment organizations as well as industries, to decentralize the delivery system and to involve employers more in the process of TVET. This paper is an attempt to x-ray the Nigerian situation in this time of Global Economic Crisis and the Challenge to TVET in Nigeria.
