Osun advocates vocational education

The Osun Government on Friday said it  would initiate a sensitisation campaign on the  importance of  acquiring technical and vocational skills.

Mr Abraham Owolabi, the Director of  Schools, Osun Board for Technical and Vocational Education, said  this in an interview with the  News Agency of  Nigeria in Osogbo.

According to the director, the state government  had made  provision  for publicity and other instruments to create awareness.

“Publicity about technical and vocational education in the state is not yet adequate, we need to let our people know the relevance of vocational and technical education to development.

“So the government should sensitise the parents and let them know that technical education is not inferior to other forms of education.

“If it is encouraged in the society, parents would not discourage their children from pursuing their gifted areas of learning and skills  acquisition,” Owolabi said.

Owolabi  also said the  entry qualification  into the nine technical schools in the state was the Junior Secondary School Certificate.

The technical schools are located in Osogbo, Ife, Iwo, Ara, Inisa, Gbongan, Osu, Ijebu-Jesa and Otan-Ayegbaju.
