0 Directory of Vocational Enterprise Institutions (VEIs) and Innovation Enterprise Institutions (IEIs) in Nigeria

Posted on Tuesday, January 15, 2013


In addition to several Federal-owned, State-owned and Privately-held universities; Nigeria also has more than 60 Colleges of Education; and a host of tertiary technical and vocational institutions and colleges.

Technical education is offered in institutions that are higher education in level, but non-university in status. Polytechnics, monotechnics (single-discipline training), technical colleges and colleges of education, of agriculture and of health technology all provide higher technical education and training. Monotechnic colleges provide instruction in a single technical subject; and thus are very specialised institutions.

With the exception of colleges of education, which itself is overseen by the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE); the rest of the technical higher institutions are overseen by the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE).

Brief history
The Federal Government had established the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) by Act 9 of January 1977; in response to the acute shortage of technical manpower which was a major constraint towards the execution of the then Third National Development Plan on education in 1975-80.

The NBTE was then saddled with overseeing the training of, and accreditation of academic programmes in all Technical and Vocational Education (TVE) institutions. These institutions were to train middle-level technical manpower, and provide practical training.

There are currently, as at November 2012, 110 approved tertiary technical institutions and 159 technical colleges under the purview of the Board including 74 Polytechnic and 27 Monotechnic Colleges, 36 Colleges of Agriculture, 50 Colleges of Health Technology, 16 Other Specialised Institutions, 71 IEIs and VEIs and 132 Technical Colleges.

Vocational Enterprise Institutions (VEIs) and Innovation Enterprise Institutions (IEIs)
Vocational Enterprise Institutions (VEIs) and Innovation Enterprise Institutions (IEIs) are institutions recently approved by the Federal Government of Nigeria to provide a veritable alternative route to higher education. They are a product of the recent reform initiatives of the Federal Ministry of Education (FME) in the education sector of the country. They are private institutions that will offer vocational, technical, technology or professional education and training at post-basic and tertiary levels to equip secondary school leavers and working adults with vocational skills and knowledge to meet the increasing demand for technical manpower by the various sectors of the nation's economy.

OBJECTIVES
Due to the lack of capacity for higher education institutions to accommodate the multitude of secondary school leavers and the low participation of the private sector in skills training, the FME decided to approve the establishment of the private sector-led VEIs and IEIs. The major aim is to widen access to Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and serve the needs of the industry and self-empowerment of the nation's citizens.

TARGET GROUPS
The VEIs and IEIs are expected to be a credible alternative form of education that will cater for the interest of:
  • School leavers who wish to acquire demonstrable practical skills to secure employment or generate employment
  • Persons seeking for career paths that do not need university degrees
  • Persons without time for full time study but want to enhance their skills
  • Persons wishing to go into self-employment
  • University graduates seeking employable skills and
  • Adults seeking opportunities to re-skill themselves
PROGRAMMES AND QUALIFICATIONS
Vocational and Innovation Enterprise Institutions are vocational institutions envisaged to offer part and full-time education leading to the award of certificates and national diplomas. VEIs will admit candidates with a minimum of basic education certificate and cover multidisciplinary areas that will prepare learners for jobs in most industries, while the IEIs are to admit students with a minimum of 5 credits at senior secondary certificate (NECO, WAEC, etc).

It is conceived that the VEIs will run three year modular programmes, where each year of study could be terminal and shall have a cogent and flexible structure and content that would equip the trainee with a practicable working skill and the possibility to exit at that level. The qualifications obtainable at this level will be called The National Vocational Certificate (NVC) Part 1, Part 2 and Final. The IEIs, on the other hand, will run diploma programmes full time (2 years) or part-time (3-4 years). The curricula will be in modules of employable skills. The qualifications given by the IEIs will be termed The National Innovation Diploma (NID).
