‘The Origin Of Traditional Apprenticeship In Nigeria’ and ‘Understanding The Traditional Nigerian Apprenticeship System.’ It is also important to note that apprenticeship is practiced in many other countries of the world but what differs is the form it takes. Developed nations operate a formal and regulated apprenticeship system within a well defined framework while a developing nation like Nigeria operates an informal and unorganized apprenticeship system. In a formal and regulated system of apprenticeship, the state provides the platform that brings the apprentice and the organizations together through structures and policies. In the Nigerian traditional system, there are no externally driven motivations that could encourage participants to be engaged in the system.

BENEFITS OF TRADITIONAL              APPRENTICESHIP

Here are some benefits of the traditional apprenticeship system:

1. JOB CREATION
Unemployment is one of the major impediments to the growth of Nigeria. Youths can adopt and improve on one of Nigeria’s traditional heritages – traditional apprenticeship – to boost their employability and as well create employment

2. EARN AS YOU LEARN
Apprenticeship gives the apprentices opportunities to earn as they learn. Most master-craftsmen give pocket money to their apprentice, which could increase as the trainee progresses in knowledge and expertise in the field for the fear of losing such apprentice to another master. Apprentices can also start getting their own customers as soon as they have acquired some knowledge enough to render some certain services in their specialized field.

HIGH-QUALITY VOCATIONAL TRAINING

High-quality vocational training can boost the economy and create new jobs and apprenticeship is the best form of vocational training. Formal education systems have failed to cater for the training of majority of the young people in a country like Nigeria: since the system is generally not geared to favour people from poor backgrounds and more also places too much emphasis on theoretical knowledge than practical. Apprenticeship offers a varied learning experience. You won’t have to spend all of your days studying; most of the time you will be on the field or working in a workshop.


4. LESS EXPENSIVE
With all the noise surrounding the tuition fee increase in formal schools, you might be thinking about gaining qualifications in other ways. Apprenticeship is a great way for you to acquire skills in many different vocations. The upgrading of the traditional vocational education and training practices is a cost-efficient way by which young people can improve their employability.

SOME REQUIRED IMPROVEMENTS
As good as the traditional apprenticeship seems, there are some important aspects of it that need improvements. These include:

1. AGREEMENTS: Even if contracts are often agreed verbally in this system, there should at least be a witness. Agreement should also explicitly cover the following areas: working hours, duration of learning, rights and obligations, fees and pay, dealing with breaches in contract.

2. LABORIOUS TRAINING ROUTINES: Apprentices undergo too much manual labour. Modern technologies should be integrated into the training of apprentices. Trainees should be able to use modern machines that are relevant for their various fields for more productivity.
