BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The major defect in Nigeria education system in the past was the low-priority to vocational studies. As in most former colonies, education in Nigeria was conceived largely as purely literally education. The educational policy then was mainly based on the 3RS i.e. reading, writing, and arithmetic which was aimed at teaching people how to read the bible and do some clerical works etc. while the vocational aspect was left totally neglected.
Apart from this general neglect and inadequate consideration for vocational studies, there have been a general misconception of the public about vocational and this educational in general.
