From prehistoric times, education has been the major source of information and knowledge. Its importance cannot be overemphasised. The fact remains that education plays a vital role in the development of every nation; hence it is of paramount importance for every citizen to be adequately educated. On the other hand, technical and vocational education is much more pivot to national development. In addition to general education, technical and vocational education is that branch of education which involves the study of applied sciences, technologies as well as the acquisition of various practical skills, understanding and the knowledge in relation to occupations in various sectors of economic life. It is a major means of preparing young adults for occupational fields and effective participation in the world of employment or work. In the light this, it is deducible that technical education is geared towards preparing people towards self and national development. In a situation where youth unemployment has taken the driver’s seat in the nation, a lot of efforts need to be geared towards development and sustaining technical education in our quest for a sustainable national development. Of a nation, the aim of this paper is to look into the role(s) played by technical education in the development especially developing ones, draw inferences and proffer necessary solutions towards a sustainable national development.
