ROLE OF TRAINER’S COMPETENCE AND TRAINING FACILITIES ON MICRO AND SMALL ENTERPRISES DEVELOPMENT IN KANO STATE NIGERIA

  • admin

Abstract

Kano state established a number of training institutes to help develop the capacities of its unemployed population to engage in productive enterprises. The objective of establishing the institutes was to further promote and deepen the enterprising history of the Kano people so as to provide an enabling environment that would create smaller and micro businesses, prevent the increasing number of business closures, and provide opportunities for more employment. About ten thousand people graduated from the institutes, many of whom have established new enterprises that hardly scale through the first six months. Hence, the objective of this study is to assess the effectiveness of the training in terms of the effect of trainer’s competence, and availability and functionality of training facilities on enterprise development. The study applied a quantitative survey design by administering a closed ended questionnaire to collect data from 370 beneficiaries of the program using convenience sampling technique. The study used multiple regression to analyse the identified variables and the findings revealed that trainer’s competence and training facilities are significant predictors of enterprise development. The study thus recommended that the training institutes should determine trainers training needs and should send them for further training. The institutes should provide up-to-date training facilities. Also, future studies should examine effects of variables like government political will and funding that could explain the remaining variance in enterprise development.
