1.1    BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The relevance of the application of vocational and technical education as pre-requisites for human, material, socio-economic and technological development has long been noticed worldwide by huge investment in vocational and technical, science and technology core curriculum introduced in 1985, and is now being implemented in schools across the country. Vocational education is education for work. It prepares individuals to be gainfully employed. These preparations become effective when teaching and implementation of results in functional learning (Nwachukwu, 200I). The importance of vocational and technical education advancement, usefulness and sustainable youth empowerment of any nation in nearly all fields of human endeavour has been a source of concern to various people and government at various times. The youth learns to accept responsibilities for his well-being favourably; he will not achieve this by simply accepting information on why vocational education is necessary for work or by the mere preparation of factual materials about it in a classroom. We cannot be content merely to guarantee the right to acquire vocational education, but must provide opportunities in such a way as to help youths to learn and adapt to a lifestyle that is deeply rooted in vocational and technical education curriculum. To achieve this goal, the youth must be actively involved in the learning process.

 

Umuru (1999) explained curriculum as all the learning experiences given to the child under the auspices of the teacher. The problem that confronts most developing countries after independence is always identified to be that of inappropriate curricula and education in such states. Vocational and technical curriculum constitutes a broad range of student’s experiences in the technical college setting. Instructions are given by teachers and curricula include these instructions that constitute a broad range of staff’s experiences. Mbaiorga (1992) stated that instruction focus on the delivery of vocational and technical, science and technology experience in the school. He further stressed that instruction may be perceived as the planned instruction between the technical teachers and students that results in desirable learning. He pointed out that some educators feel that all curricula include instruction, while others contend that sound instruction includes a sound curriculum
