Technical education is one of the aspects of Nigerian education in which its curriculum was designed to enable the beneficiaries use both the hand and the brain while learning. However, this aspect did not develop quickly in Nigeria and that invariably affected the Nigerian industrial and technological development. There should be a balance between technical and general education so that the two can complement each other.
Oguntoye and Alani (1998) emphasize the need to enhance human development. They assert that opportunities must be created for the people to develop their abilities to ensure personal dignity and self respect. Onyene and Fabiyi (2007) state that quality assurance in education was concerned with the maintenance and improvement of quality in educational services rendered and its relevance to the society as well. For any quality assurance measure to be effective, it has to consider the functionality of the input, processes and output. Quality and practical education certainly transcend passing examinations and acquiring certificate as a proof of learning. It involves being able to adequately translate theory into practice.
