The increasing number of unemployed youths in Nigeria has necessitated the need to carry out
this study on the public-private partnership in Nigeria as solution to the increasing graduate
unemployment. This study, a survey research design, sought to determine the strategies for
effective PPP in TVET in Nigeria, the prospects of sustained PPP and the constraints to a
successful PPP in TVET. Population of the study comprised of 145 lecturers from five tertiary
institutions in South-East Nigeria and 125 industrial workers from 13 firms in the same South
East, to give a total of 170 respondents for the study. Data was collected using questionnaire
based on five point Likert scale. Data collected were analyzed using mean, standard deviation
and Z-test statistic. Findings revealed no significant difference in the mean responses of
lecturers and industrial workers on the strategies and prospects of PPP in TVET in Nigeria.
Recommendations made include among others, institution of strong policy framework to guide
and facilitate PPP, encourage private sectors to participate in PPP through provision of incentives
such as tax rebate and insurance coverage for participants.
