VOCATIONAL ENTERPRISE INSTITUTIONS (VEI) AND
INNOVATIVE ENTERPRISE INSTITUTIONS (IEI)IN NIGERIA
(Scroll down for the list of institutions).
Vocational Enterprise Institutions (VEIs) and Innovation Enterprise Institutions (IEIs) are institutions recently approved by the Federal Government of Nigeria to provide a veritable alternative route to higher education. They are a product of the recent reform initiatives of the Federal Ministry of Education (FME) in the education sector of the country. They are private institutions that will offer vocational, technical, technology or professional education and training at post-basic and tertiary levels to equip secondary school leavers and working adults with vocational skills and knowledge to meet the increasing demand for technical manpower by the various sectors of the nation's economy.
The major aim of the Federal government and the Federal Ministry of Education in establishing the VEIs and the IEIs "is to widen access to Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and serve the needs of the industry and self-empowerment of the nation's citizens”.
The VEIs and IEIs are expected to be a credible alternative form of education that will cater for the interest of:
1) School leavers who wish to acquire demonstrable practical skills to secure employment or generate employment
2) Persons seeking for career paths that do not need university degrees
3) Persons without time for full time study but want to enhance their skills
4) Persons wishing to go into self-employment
5) University graduates seeking employable skills and
6) Adults seeking opportunities to re-skill themselves
PROGRAMMES AND QUALIFICATIONS Vocational and Innovation Enterprise Institutions are vocational institutions envisaged to offer part and full-time education leading to the award of certificates and national diplomas.
VEIs admit candidates with a minimum of basic education certificate and cover multidisciplinary areas that prepare candidates for jobs in most industries.
IEIs on the other hand admit students with a minimum of 5 credits at senior secondary certificate (NECO, WAEC, etc).
The VEIs run a three year modular programmes, where each year of study is terminal and have a cogent and flexible structure and content that equips the trainee with practicable working skill and the possibility to exit at that level. The qualification obtainable at this level is called The National Vocational Certificate (NVC) Part 1, Part 2 and Final.
The IEIs, on the other hand, run a two (2) year full time diploma programme or a part-time (3-4 years) diploma programme. The curricula are in modules of employable skills. The qualifications given by the IEIs are termed The National Innovation Diploma (NID). Source:NABTE www.nabte.gov.ng
