The focus on human capital as a driver of economic growth for developing countries has led to an undue attention on Technical and vocational Education and Training (TVET). Developing countries have made considerable progress in closing the gap with developed countries in terms of TVET skills and competencies, but recent research has underscored the importance of TVET skills and competencies for economic growth. This paper takes a look at the origin of technical education in Nigeria, vis a vis current situation as well as implications for national development.
