Role of Industry and International Organisations in Improving Technical Vocational Education and Training in Nigeria

Ayonmike Shirley Chinyere


This paper reports the findings of a study that delved into the roles of industries and international organisations in improving Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in Nigeria. A survey design was used. The 152 principals of the government technical colleges in the country comprised the population of the study. Seventy-six (representing 50 percent) of these principals were selected to participate in the study. These were selected using stratified random sampling. Data was collected using a 10-item questionnaire. The data was analysed using means and student-t test at the level of significance p = .05. The study revealed that industries and international organizations have great roles to play in improving TVET in the country. Hence, it is recommended that government makes policies that will promote collaboration between TVET institutions and these organisations.
