NIGERIA: Vocational and Technical Training, The Key to industrial Development, Lessons from Japan, Germany, England, and Wales

ISBN: 1569024561

In this informative book, a crucial debate was boldly reactivated by the author, the late Mrs Valentina Ifeyinwa Okaru. This crucial subject was focused on Vocational and technical education who the author argued was the key to the technological and economic development of Nigeria and the rest of the Third World. The author has combined a historical perspective and policy trends in Nigeria with a comparative review of the experience of Japan, Germany, England and Wales based upon her own global experiences of the subject. The book is striking for the passionate commitment which the author brings to the question of vocational education and training and for her belief in its necessity for self-reliant economic development in Nigeria. Economic development requires the utilization of technologies, both new and old, and this book rightly celebrates the importance of traditional crafts, and skills to practice them. -Prof. Andy Green, from the Preface Undoubtedly, this book will be useful for academics, students and development professionals who seek solutions to the challenging and increasing education, employment and economic development problems, including high youth and adult unemployment rate and high crimes in Nigeria and other developing nations. -Ambassador Attah Sefi, from the Appreciation
