The National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), says it will tackle issues that are negatively affecting the standard of technical and vocational training in the country.
The board’s Executive Secretary, Dr Masa’udu Kazaure, gave the assurance in Kaduna on Wednesday at a meeting with Chairmen and Rectors of state polytechnics.
The meeting was summoned to discuss critical issues affecting standards especially in states-owned polytechnics.
Kazaure noted that some of the institutions were running unaccredited courses, enrolling more than their capacity, facing serious funding gaps and have no proper statistics on their activities.
He added that the polytechnics have unqualified staff, and serious issues with their workers.
