Prof. Isiugo-Abanihe observed that fundamental to a balanced development in any nation is Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET), saying “Among several other benefits, TVET and certificates being issued by NABTEB are essential for producing highly skilled workforce necessary to make Nigeria one of the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economies in the world.

“If adequately supported and embraced, it will lead to lifelong learning, self-reliance, poverty reduction and eradication on the long run.”

She listed TVET programmes and institutions; gross imbalance between number of Technical Colleges and conventional secondary schools leading to low enrolment; insufficient qualified technical teachers, equipment and materials for practical activities, among others as some of the challenges facing the Board.
