Abstract

This paper intends to discuss curriculum with special reference to its meaning, types, elements, implementation, factors that influence Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) curriculum, and the challenges of implementing TVET curriculum in Nigerian Universities. Some of the challenges include; inadequate funding and inadequate human and material resources. However, this paper recommended that government, non-governmental organisation, international organisation and stakeholders should work collectively to address the challenges of implementation of TVET curriculum in Nigerian universities and also to address the general problems of education.

Keywords: TVET, curriculum, implementation and challenges
