Essential Readings in Vocational Technical Education

A perspective in vocational education has been designed to incorporate into one volume, some outstanding papers dealing with current issues, concept, and trends in vocational technical education. Some of the issues discussed in the book include various vocational programmes that are offered in Nigerian secondary and post secondary institutions, management, staffing, as well as trends on students enrollment. The above issues are essential in the training and development of students as well as planning and administration of vocational-technical programmes in secondary and post secondary institutions. A distinctive feature of the book is its blend in theory and practice particularly as related to vocational training and manpower development. Chapters 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, and 18 specifically dealt with programmes, training, technological, and manpower advancement. All concept and terms that are presented in the book are explained and discussed within the simplest framework using updated references. The book can be used widely by both undergraduate and post-graduate students as well as teachers in the secondary and post-secondary institutions. The writing of this book affords me an opportunity to happily express my gratitude to some eminent people that have been used by God for sustained encouragement in my academic career. My long standing thanks go to Professor Michael N. Sugarman (My teacher at University of Akron, Ohio, U.S.A.) whose excellence in conduct, teaching, and researching have (for many years) inspired much of the driving spirit of my work.
