Five research questions guided the study, as well 5 hypotheses were formulated and tested at 0.05 level of significance. The survey research design was used, and the population of the study was 755 TVET students from Delta State colleges of education. However, 100 TVET students were randomly selected from college of education, Warri and Agbor respectively, making up a total of 200 respondents. Questionnaire was the instrument used for data collection which was validated by the three lecturers. Also, the reliability of the questionnaire was ascertained using Cronbach’s Alpha correlation which yielded 0.89 coefficients. Data were collected by the researcher, and the mean and standard deviation were used to analysed data for the research questions, while z-test was used to test the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The study revealed that the challenges to the implementation of TVET curriculum emanated from various factors such as government, school, students’, and lecturers’ factors.
