CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Background Of The Study

The world is growing technological and Nigeria must not be left behind. Nigeria child must not be given that aspect of Education, which leads to the acquisition of practical and applied skills as well as basic scientific knowledge. In this direction there arose the need to improve our educational system. (Adaralesble 2001).

Because of the above fact, the national policy on education introduced innovations in secondary education in Nigeria. Instead of the former five years of secondary education, there is now a six years secondary school system broken into two stages: Junior and senior stages, each lasting for three years (National Policy Of Education 2004).

National Policy Of Education recommends prevocational course in junior secondary school classes. The recommendations are:

  1. To provide the technical knowledge and vocational skills necessary for agricultural commercial and economic development.
  2. To Provide trained manpower in the applied science, technology and business particularly at craft advanced craft and technical skills.
  3. To Give training and impart the necessary skills to individual who shall be self reliant economically, It is perhaps with regard to the fulfilment of the general education that the introduction of vocational courses into both junior and secondary school, as presently outlined in the national policy on education, can best be understood.

Skill simply mean the ability to do something and perfectly, when we talk of skill it means the ability for somebody to specialized in a particular job, that is somebody who is trained and have the experience about a particular job.

Acquisition could be define according to the oxford advanced learners dictionary 5th edition as thing acquire must especially something that is more meaningful, or the action or process of acquiring something that can bring or improve a system.

Skill acquisition can be said to mean systematic process of imbibing new ideas and knowledge of executing accurately professional functions.

The problem of skill acquisition are; problem of finance, unqualified teachers, insufficient industries for training.  Okoro 1999 said, that it is necessary to point out that the more possession of skills will not lead to employment unless there are vacancies in industrial and commercial establishments that possess the required skills.

Any plan to train skilled workers, especially in such large number, should be combined with a systematic man to expand industrial establishment so that those trained can actually obtain employment in the occupation for which they have been trained. Also, areas of training should be closely matched to the areas of need. The national policy on education (2004) stated that trade centers and similar vocational centers would be established to absorb junior secondary school leavers who could not proceed to senior secondary school.

PROJECT TOPIC :PROBLEMS AND IMPLICATION OF SKILL ACQUISITION IN JUNIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL IN IZZI LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA OF EBONYI STATE

A critical assessment of the present situation in Nigeria will reveal that there are not enough jobs to absorb the thousand of the school leaver who are yearly produced by our secondary school system irrespective of what ever skill they may poses. The present National policy on Education is rightly not implemented hence secondary school students leave school with skills perhaps inferior to these already possessed by thousand of unemployed technical colleges leavers and products of the apprentice ship system (Okoro 1999). It is against this background, that the researcher wants to find out the problem and implication of skill acquisition.

Statement of the Problem

Okafor (1988) stated that if National policy on education is not implemented, this would result in the production of unqualified students and teachers who lack skills in their areas of specialization.   Adam (1982) says   that among other problem facing education sector of Nigeria is finance, equipment and infrastructure; and lack of technical teachers.

Ezeala (1994) said that it is necessary to determine the factor responsible for the failure in order to improve students’ performance, knowledge and skills.    He said that half-baked teacher and student is as a result of above-mentioned problem. Hence it appeal to the research to *carry, out research on   the problems and implication of acquisition of skills junior secondary school in IZZI Local Government of Ebonyi state.
