Entrepreneurship education is an organised programme taught at our tertiary institutions to trained students to be self reliant. This study seeks to find out how effective the Entrepreneurship Education helps students attending a course leading to award of “Nigeria Certificate in Education” (NCE vocational and technical education) become self reliant by way of incubating their own businesses after graduation. Thus, the research assesses the impact of the entrepreneurial education in promoting business start up through new skills, knowledge, behaviour, and attitudes acquired from the colleges. It further tries to find out if the colleges have good activities that could prepare students for entrepreneurship. The research involves a survey conducted on 300 students selected via the simple random sampling method out of the 1200 final year’s students of the Federal Colleges of Education Potiskum and Gombe (FCE Potiskum & FCE Gombe). The final year students were considered because they have taken all the entrepreneurship education courses and are ready to face the real world for work. Two hypotheses guided this study. Mean, Standard Deviation and simple percentage were used in making analysis. The hypotheses were tested using the t-test at 0.05 significant levels. The findings revealed that the students have no intention to be self employed, and that the colleges have adequate but not befitting programs to prepare students for entrepreneurship after graduation. The study proffered recommendations to government and the institutions to tackle the problem.

Keywords: Entrepreneurship, Technical and Vocational, Entrepreneurship Education, Job and Self-reliance.
