Abstract

The study assessed the possibility of managing the Nigerian Tertiary Education for National Transformation through Effective Continuous Staff Training and Development (CSTD) using Federal College of Education (Technical) as an example. The study determined the role played by continuous staff training and development “as a work of activity” in the overall effectiveness and profitability of the Nigerian tertiary education. The study adopted the descriptive survey research design. Three (3) research questions were raised for the study. A proportionate random sampling procedure was employed in selection of 50% out of 216 academic staff within the institution (FCE (T) Asaba). However, 108 academic staff from various department/schools within the institution was sampled. A 36-itemed questionnaire titled: Effective Continuous Staff Training and Development for Managing the Nigerian Tertiary Education Questionnaire for Academic Staff (ECSTDMNTEQAS), developed by the researchers and designed on a modified Likert type 4 – point scale was used in the study. Reliability and validity of the research instrument was also determined. Data was analyzed using frequency mode, mean score (X ̅) and grand mean. The findings revealed that CSTD was very useful in the management of tertiary education. It improved academic staff competence and proficiency which boosted their productivity and performance for quality and academic excellence in the school. CSTD played enormous role in the management of Nigerian tertiary education although there are challenges that hindered its effective utilization as revealed by the findings of the study. The study recommended the following: that adequate fund should be provided for effective utilization of CSTD and likewise for government to implement effective policies and education reforms that will encourage the use of CSTD in the Nigerian tertiary institutions.
