CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 Background of the study

Entrepreneurship study and training as defined by UNESCO (2010, p. 9) is “an educational process leading to the acquisition of practical skills, attitudes, knowledge and skills” knowledge of the occupations in various sectors of the social economy and social life. Entrepreneurship study as part of an education system enriches the management of economic and development challenges (Quisumbing, 2001).

However, this applies when the implementation of Entrepreneurship studies meets the needs of the population. Entrepreneurship studies must also be adapted to the needs of the environment. socially, economically, culturally and politically. Alam (2008) states that the strength of a nation lies in its people.

Entrepreneurship studies as such is the key to human development as it determines the type of development of a country based on the quality and relevance of the offered entrepreneurship study . However, Wallenborn (2009) argues that development in developing countries, especially in Africa, is still sluggish compared to developed countries due to the quality of education and training offered. The question of the quality of education and training also concerns entrepreneurship.

Therefore, the contribution of entrepreneurship study to development in Africa is limited. This is due to factors related to the implementation of entrepreneurship training. Entrepreneurship training was and is a common development strategy for many countries around the world, including Australia, Germany, China, Taiwan, India, Bangladesh, Ghana, Botswana and Africa South (Alam, 2008, p. 9).

Australia and Germany have used entrepreneurship training to give young people skills and knowledge to address the problem of youth unemployment (Iacovou and Arnstein, 2007). Countries such as Taiwan, China and India have further developed entrepreneurship as a tool to promote the creation of skilled labor (UNESCO, 2009). This increases productivity and thus economic growth. However, the role of entrepreneurship continues to be in the promotion of social development. This shows that entrepreneurship plays different roles in development. Entrepreneurship was also implemented as an anti-poverty initiative. Among the numerous poverty alleviation initiatives, entrepreneurship is a program for developing skills for young people. Tikley (2012) argues that different environmental factors need to be included in the entrepreneurship system. The inability of VET to consider environmental factors undermines their impact as a development initiative. Entrepreneurship training as a youth program must also take into account the factors of youth dynamics.

1.2 Problem statement

Colley et al. (2007) point out that in the 20th century, young people face greater development challenges and are more likely to become prone to poverty. In this context, youth vulnerability includes young people aged 15 to 24 who face significant barriers to achieving or maintaining well-being (Berzin, 2010).

Despite commendations and efforts in the field of entrepreneurship training, arguments are advanced to justify their role and their effectiveness as trainers sale (Filmer & Fox, 2014). These arguments are due to the fact that entrepreneurship does not provide qualified professionals for the development process in Africa (UNESCO, 2006). Although entrepreneurship has contributed to some extent to the training and skills development of young people, it has not only provided skilled workers to meet the needs of the labor market (Berzin, 2010). This is due to social and economic factors that influence the implementation of entrepreneurship and prevent the program from achieving its objectives. One of these aims is the role of entrepreneurship in reducing the vulnerability of adolescents. Entrepreneurship in Nigeria does not lack these arguments and doubts
