COREG urges government to reinvigorate skills acquisition in schools
The Conference of Registrars of Polytechnics and Colleges of Technology in Nigeria (COREG) has urged the Federal Government to reinvigorate entrepreneurial skills acquisition in schools, to arrest rising unemployment among the youths.
In a communiqué issued at the end of its regular meeting at Plateau State Polytechnic, signed by its Chairperson and Registrar, Yaba College of Technology, Charity Amakapabo, the association called for a review of education policy in favour of reintroducing craft and vocations at Junior Secondary School level, to provide the foundation for technical and vocational skills for self-employment.
The body urged the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), to put machinery in motion for the establishment of a standing national conference of Polytechnic and Colleges of Technology, to serve as a common forum to address common and emerging issues affecting polytechnic education in Nigeria.
