Ogwa Christopher Eze, Ogbu, James Ekuma


The research sought to identify the skill improvement needs of electrical installation trade teachers in technical colleges for productive employment. A structured questionnaire was the instrument adopted to elicit data from the respondents. The population of the study consisted of sixty three (63) teachers currently teaching in technical colleges in Ebonyi State school system. No sampling was done because of the relative small size of the teachers’ population. The data collected was analyzed using mean and standard deviation. The findings of the study revealed that teachers need to update their pedagogical skills in planning curriculum, instructional objectives and evaluation in electrical installation trade teaching. The teachers also need to improve their teaching prowess by partaking in in-service trainings to update their competencies aimed at up skilling technical college students to enable them adjust to the world of paid employment or self reliance on graduation.
