Abstract

This study investigated instructional resource management for the implementation of a vocational education programme in secondary schools in Nigeria. This study was a descriptive survey design. The population comprised all the 224 public senior secondary schools in Abia State constituting 2,457 teachers handling vocational subjects. They included 1,400 male teachers and 1,057 female teachers; as well as 1,557 teachers in rural areas and 900 teachers in urban areas. A sample size of 450 teachers was drawn using a stratified random sampling technique, representing 18.3% of the population. They included 250 male and 200 female teachers; 300 from rural areas and 150 from urban areas. Instructional Resource Management for the Implementation of Vocational Education Programme Questionnaire (IRMIVEQ) was designed by the researchers. The instrument was validated experts in the field of Education and reliability tested with a test-retest method. Pearson’s product moment correlation was used to calculate the two separate scores, which yielded an index of 0.75. Mean scores and standard deviation were used in answering the research questions. To test the hypotheses, z-test was used.

The use of magnetic boards for teaching and transmission of knowledge to students and projectors for instructional purposes/knowledge transfer were very low.
