CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1       Background of the Study

In Nigeria today, the increasing rate of poverty, unemployment, Corruption and many other Social problems had become worrisome to the government and to every well meaning citizens. The incidence of poverty in Nigeria is on the high side about 70% of the total population has been classified as poor (Nigeria entrepreneurship initiative, Ewhrudjakpor, 2008). The problem of unemployment is particularly pathetic as the number of those coming out from various institutions looking for employment opportunity continues to increase day by day.

The situation in Nigeria is of such concern that hundreds of unemployed University graduates mounted a demonstration in front of the Presidential offices to express their concern. They demanded that government should provide them with jobs to cater for their essential needs of life (Dabalen, Oni and Adekola 2000).

The pace of development recorded in such nation like Malaysia, Indonesia, Brazil and India, among others, have clearly shown that development is driven by the innovativeness, creativity and enterprise of the people. Unfortunately, Nigeria has not been able to enact similar feats owing to poor linkage between knowledge and development, and between the private and public sector of the economy. This may have been due to lack of appropriate skills and sufficient entrepreneurial culture in the educational system.

Education can simply be a tool for securing employment and emancipation of people through the provision of acquiring the necessary knowledge and skills to make life more flourishing. One practical strategy towards reducing the rate of unemployment and eradicating poverty is by scaling up investments in infrastructure and human capital. Human capital development facilitates through a well structured academic curriculum that is entrepreneurial focused. A nation with increased numbers of self sustained and self dependent graduates will record less numbers of unemployed graduates.

Entrepreneurship development through education has been receiving attention globally, while several attempts have been made through researchers, mounting of entrepreneurship courses, programmes in both Institutions of Learning and entrepreneurship research  centers for the purpose of developing both entrepreneurship spirit and culture (Akpomi 2009; Adejimola and Olufunmilayo 2009; Dickson, Solomon and Weaver, 2008; Vincent and Farlow, 2008).

In this regard, effort has to be intensified to mobilize and enhance entrepreneurial activity which will consequently benefit individuals, government, and the society at large. The issue of poverty eradication has been a top priority of many government and institutions especially in developing countries where extreme poverty is conspicuous and become pandemic (MDGs report, 2007).

This review therefore examine the significance of entrepreneurial skills in vocational and technical education for developing a strong virile economy.

Entrepreneurship education is a key driver of our economy. Wealth and  high majority of jobs are created by small businesses started by entrepreneurially minded individuals, many of whom go on to create big businesses. People exposed to entrepreneurship frequently, express that they have more opportunity to exercise creative freedom higher self esteem, and an overall greater sense of control over their own lives. As a result, many experienced business people political leaders, economists and educators believes that fostering a robust entrepreneurial culture will maximize individual and collective economic and social success on a local national and global scale. It is with this in mind that the National standard for entrepreneurship education were developed; to prepare youth and adults to succeed in an entrepreneurial economy.

Entrepreneurship education is a lifelong learning process, starting as early as elementary school and progressing through all levels of education, including adult education. The Standard and their supporting performance indicators are a framework for teacher to use in building appropriate objectives, learning activities and assessments for their target audience, using this framework student will have progressively more challenging educational activities, experiences that will enable them to develop the insight needed to discover and create entrepreneurial opportunity, and the expertise to successful start and manage their own businesses to take advantages of these opportunities.

The Importance of entrepreneurship to any economy is like that of entrepreneurship in any community. Entrepreneurial activities and the resultant financial gain are always of benefit to a country.

Entrepreneurship Education focuses on developing understanding and capacity for pursuit of entrepreneurial behaviours, skills and attributes in widely different contexts. It can be portrayed as open to all and not exclusively the domain of the high-flying growth-seeking business person. The propensity to behave entrepreneurially is not exclusive to certain individuals; different individual will have a different mix of capabilities for demonstrating and acquiring entrepreneurial behaviours, skills and attributes. The behaviours can be practiced, developed and learned; hence it is important to expose all students to entrepreneurship education.

Entrepreneurial skills and attitudes provide benefits to society, even beyond their application to business activities. Obviously speaking personal qualities that are relevant to entrepreneurship, such as creativity and spirit of initiative, can be useful to everyone, in their working responsibilities and in their daily existence. Also the relevant technical skills need to be provided to those who choose to be self-employed and to start their own venture.

Entrepreneurship should be taught to students of all disciplines in the Institutions. It is not out of place to say that many business ideas, emerge from non-business discipline but are often waved aside or ignored because students are not sufficiently educated in the knowledge and skill required.

1.2       Statement of the Problem
