1.0            INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND STUDY

As policy makers focus on reducing unemployment, many look to economic growth as a key driver of job creation. Certainly a growing economy can lead to new jobs and increased prosperity. However, higher growth rates do not necessarily lead to more job opportunities or lower unemployment. Increased productivity due to new technologies or higher commodity prices can produce economic growth without corresponding job creation. Additionally, growth is not necessarily shared among a population equally. It is often concentrated in particular sectors, having relatively little impact on other portions of the populations. Governments and other institutions (such as employer associations, NGOs and universities) have critical roles to play in implementing policies and programs that reduce unemployment while encouraging economic growth. One way to increase the employability of a population and promote job creation is to improve the quality of education. Education contributes to overall economic growth by improving the efficiency of the workforce and leading to higher rates of individual productivity, which in turn lead to a higher demand for qualified workers.

Education can provide individuals with the necessary market skills to be relevant in the economy. However, this can only happen when the quality of education is ensured. The issue is that most educational systems do not foster inventive thinking, communication skills, problem solving or the other competencies that can help individuals do well in their jobs. In order to change this situation and maximize the benefits of education while increasing the employability of graduates, collaboration is needed between governments, the private sector and educational institutions.

Such collaboration could support the preparedness of workers by aligning the supply and demand of skilled graduates while ensuring the system operates in a favorable policy environment. For example, the German dual system of apprenticeship is often touted as a model for other countries in reducing youth unemployment. This program allows youth to accrue important work experience that will make them more employable and facilitates the school-to-work transition.

The German system involves close collaboration between the government and the private sector where the cost and development of the training’s content is shared jointly by both bodies. Learning from the success of the apprenticeship programs like this one can provide guidance on how youth unemployment can be reduced. There is therefore a need to carry out a study on the roles of education in generating employment in the society.

1.2     STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

Education is a major tool for national development; it gives people the ability to interact intelligently with the outside world. However, the effectiveness of education in generating employment is one of the major concerns in our society. The rate of unemployment among youth in our society is so alarming and disturbing.

Decades ago, people always perceive education as an escape route from poverty but the reverse is the case now because there are so many unemployed graduates who are finding so difficult to get good jobs. Some cannot even afford a decent meal and house. Most people now see schooling as a waste of time since there is no assurance of a good after graduation.

The educational sectors have a limited space for employment. It is important for the government to establish more educational institutions in order to increase the level of employement in the society. Few number of companies in the society is the cause why hundreds of graduate will apply for vacant position has can only be occupied by few people. So this study focuses on the roles of education In generating employment in the society.

1.3     OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY     

The general objective of this study is to examine the role of education in generating employment in the society. The specific objectives are:

1.     To ascertain if education equips youths on the required skills for employment.

2.     To find if education influences the employability of people in the society.

3.     To examine if the educational sectors provide job for people in the society.

4.     To determine if education is really an important requirement for getting a good job.

5.     To ascertain the level of unemployment among youths in the society.

1.4     RESEARCH QUESTIONS

The relevant research questions related to this study are:

1.     Does education equips youths on the required skills for employment?

2.     Does education influences the employability of people in the society?

3.     Do the educational sectors provide job for people in the society?

4.     Is education is really an important requirement for getting a good job?

5.     What is the level of unemployment among youths in the society?

1.5     SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY 

The findings from this study are relevant to youths, parents and most importantly the government. This study helps students to know the importance of education in generating employment and how it equips them on the required skills needed for interacting intelligently with people in the world. To parents, it educates them on the reasons why they should give their children the best education they can. Schooling is an important way of educating a child, parent are expected to encourage their children on the relevance of education. Education is the right of every child.

The roles of the government in generating employment for educated youth are well emphasized in this study. Measures should be taken in using education as a channel of generating employment for graduates, building of more educational institution will also provide more jobs for graduates. For these reasons and many others, it is glaring that there is a need to carry out an investigation on the roles of education in generating employment in the society.

The finding from this research can also be used as a reference material for other researchers who will likely carry out a study on a related topic

1.6     SCOPE OF THE STUDY

The scope of this study is restricted to the roles of education in generating employment in the society.

1.7     LIMITATION OF THE STUDY

Some of the major constraints the researchers encountered in putting up this research include lack of time, lack of willingness to give information by respondent and also limited resources
