One of the major focuses of the Transformation Agenda of the present day government in Nigeria is the skill acquisition programme for the youth. The programme is designed to check youthful exuberance, minimize unemployment rate, curb insecurity and reduce poverty across the nation. In pursuance of these goals the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) an organ of the Federal Government mandated all tertiary institutions in the country to establish an entrepreneurial and vocational Centre in their schools to prepare graduates and diplomates of tertiary institutions to be employable, self-employable, create jobs for others and earn a living for themselves. Studies have shown that there are a number of problems militating against these entrepreneurship Centres preventing them to function properly; these include poor management of records, shortage of staff, inadequate facility, and poor financing to mention just a few. An on-line system for entrepreneurship skill acquisition programme is proposed. The system was developed using incremental model development process. The front-end was designed using macromedia DreamWeaver 8.0, Macromedia Flash as the editor. The system logic and work flow was developed using Server Side Scripting Language (PHP) on Apache Tomcat Server while MSQL 5.0 was used as the backend.
