The research is concerned with the impact of industrial training
in polytechnics using our saviour institute of Science Agriculture and
technology (OSISATECH) Enugu as a case study. The statement of the problem
includes that stipend normally paid to student on industrial work experience
scheme by ITF is no longer forthcoming, yet expect student to provide for the
financial aids. Secondly that student fixed themselves in any field whether it
is their area or not, only to make sure they are working. Despite the problems,
the study reveals the major objectives which includes that industrial training
help students to acquire skills, experience, knowledge and understanding in
their various fields, which leads to specialization and thereby make the
students to determined high ambition in their future lives.
In pursuance of the above objects, both primary and secondary data
were sourced. The target respondents mainly business and financial studies
department of final year were statistically determined for the purpose of both
questionnaires administration and personal interview.
Data generated from respondents were carefully analysed using
appropriate statistical tools, two hypothesis based on the research questions
were formulated for testing using chi-square, which revolved on the subject of
the research. The study reviews some findings.
However, contrary to the expectation, a testing using chi-square
hypothesis formulated laid the research to conclude that the impact of
industrial training is not good in polytechnics as the expected value is less
than the critical value on both tests.
0.356 < 1.96; 1.04799 < 1.96
based on the research, the research made the following
recommendation which we believes if carefully implemented will go a long way to
improve the impact of industrial training programme should made compulsory in
the various institution with reasonable credit unit. Secondly, that there
should be no restriction on choice of area of doing the programme, the area of
doing the programme should be generalized thought federation.

This chapter consists of details of the topic under research. Here
the background of the subject matter and problems. Associated with the subject
matter and the important of studying the area will be revealed along with
research question so as to enable the researcher know what the research work is
BACKGROUND OF THE SUBJECT MATTER
As a result of growing school learners unemployment in the 1970’s
the Nigeria Government introduced. The new national policy on education in
1981. One of the major provisions of the policy was the induction of the issues
on technical and practical courses in the polytechnics and universities in the
federation, with emphasis on the total acquisition of practical skills, value
and knowledge that would enable individual. Live meaningful in the society
during and after school.
One of the reasons is to emphasis on the course, which would equip
the graduate with the skills for gainful employment even if they terminated
their formal education at the junior secondary level. One of the basic
necessity for the relevant teaching is availability of adequate facilities,
including qualified teachers groomed with practical skills. This ensure that
student are taught or look directives according to the curriculum and using
appropriate methodology for the Board. It is not possible to teach a student to
operate a computer machine effectively without the application of computer
machine by himself nor is it possible to teach a student to operate a
proportional spacing of typewriter without the application of typewriter by the
person also, that’s why our Saviour Institute of Science and Agriculture and
Technology (OSISATECH) as a polytechnics tries to impact the skills to the
teachers who must have a through knowledge of the course and certified in the
area, so that teachers can demonstrate the skill properly for the student to
understand and emulate. Noal (1971) and Thompson (1941). The writer stressed
that the individual will acquire skills and teach the stated goal by watching
an expert and by practicing. This they believe that the individual in addition
to this should be giving enough practice to enable him master the art.
On the other hand, Anaw (1986) said that it is not only expected
to seek out identity. Create or anticipate human needs but it is also required
to create through the harassing of the totality of human ingenuity and
knowledge of all the amount of goods and services that are needed to satisfy
those wants and needs.
1.2 PROBLEM ASSOCIATED WITH THE
40 to 50% of the students are no longer hare interest
of searching where they will get the students industrial work
experience there by go for computer training in the period allocated for the
training which made them to be in their various areas and where by execute
inadequate effective and efficient production.
ii. The stepend normally paid to students on
experiences scheme by industrial training fund (ITF) is no longer
forth coming; yet the students are expected to transport, accommodate and feed
themselves while on training. Only few students can afford these extra costs
and most establishments where they undertake this training are very reluctant
to make any financial commitment to these students. This discouraged students
active participation in the programme and it is a big problem.
iii. Students are no longer taking their industrial
experience so serious today because they do look forward for a
place. Where a reasonable amount of money will be paid before applying for an
appointment for that, thereby self-centered themselves in the money not.
iv. But not the least is that students due to in
locate where (organization) to acquire the industrial experience
for their careers, they acquire any work from organization where it concerns
their field or not, so far the amount is considerable for them.
1.3 PROBLEM(S) THAT THE STUDY WILL BE CONCERNED WITH
1.3In the cause
of trying to cover these are as for the project work there are some problems
that stunk the effectiveness of the work.
There was no much money to carryout effective research work by the researcher
thereby set back his determined. Plan for the exclusion of necessary
information on the project.
In the process of data collection which is primary, some students were not
serious on the questionnaires and make funs with it, thereby minimize the
number of respondents.
A lot of times were wasted to announce the commencement of the project in the
school (OSISATECH), which made the period allocation to be very short, mean
while affects the most information needed to meet.
1.31.4 THE IMPORTANT OF
STUDYING THE AREA
1.3i. It helps students to acquire skills, experiences
knowledge and understanding in their various field.
It makes the students to determined high ambitious in their failure lives after
they might have finished the industrial training.
It helps the polytechnics to have a local standard with the universities.
It helps the student to understand the aspects he is good on that suit his life.
It helps the government to have good life and expectations of our economy in
future handing of our youths.
1.31.5 DEFINITION OF
