Technical colleges offer practical education for the acquisition of skills as well as basic scientific knowledge. Pre-vocational and vocational schools at the post-primary, Technical colleges and the Technical Teacher Colleges at post-secondary are some technical institutions.
Students interested in technical education either leave for the technical school after the primary School education, after the JSS level or after the SSS level of secondary education.
The government has the responsibility of taking care of technical education; every state is required to have at least one institution running advanced crafts courses with an emphasis on the training of technical teachers. Every local government in the country is expected to have a functional technical school. In reality, not all local governments have technical schools.
