Preparing learners for real-world problems
One of the main goals at Nigeria’s Yaba College of Technology (YCT) is to utilize its role as a TVET institution to meet the needs of the community and to help solve some of the most pressing issues at the regional and national level. These include improved food security, a reduction in unemployment and a decrease in environmental pollution. Projects at YCT are guided by market research demands, giving students experience in addressing real-world problems and a sense of the wider impact of their TVET experience.
Since the introduction of the YCT Applied Research and Technology Innovation (ARTI) Centre in 2006, demand-driven research has shaped the curriculum and laid the foundation for a series of projects that provide students with professional training in a real-world setting.
