TECHNIQUES FOR ENHANCING THE COMPETENCIES OF BUILDING TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION STUDENTS IN UNIVERSITIES

CHAPTER I
INTRODUCTION
Background of the Study
Building serves as shelter to humanity. Shelter occupies top ranking after food and before clothing in the list of basic necessities of life and in the hierarchy of human needs dependent on the prevalent competencies. Competencies are the guiding principles of productivity that had stimulated the development of the built environment to bungalows, upstairs, edifices, multi-storeys, sky scrapers, ports, stadia, highways, bridges, dams etc by the construction industry team of professionals, skilled craftsmen (blue pc rints dream realizers) and their facilitators (teachers, instructors or lecturers). The above progress necessitated clamours and intensification of energy on the development of competencies globally. The competencies that had transformed the built environment to residential, commercial and industrial buildings
plus other engineering structures in various countries had depended on the levels of
competence of the professional and sub-professioal operatives.
According to Snowflake (2008) competence is closely related to the level of proficiency at what some one does. It involves the quality of being adequately or well qualified physically and intellectually for a job or occupation. In another contribution, Lorriman, Young and Kalinauckas (1995) referred to competence as efficient, effective and proper application of skills based on appropriate knowledge and attitudes.
They added that competence should be measureable in a useful way and be described
by active verbs showing actions such as to operate, procure, plan, maintain,design, report, specify, construct, evaluate etc. In the light of the above views, the bases for efficiency and productivity remain competencies.

Statement of the Problem
With the needs for rapid development of the built environment by the craftsmen as workmen, headmen, foremen or supervisors with the professionals of the construction industry after independence, the University of Nigerian Nsukka in 1962, started the training of building technology education students in Vocational Teacher Education (VTE) Department to acquire competencies to produce skilledcraftsmen in the technical colleges. Today, many Nigeria universities including those from the South-East geopolitical zone equally train building technology education students. Since competencies are attributes that ensure efficient productivities in technical occupations, the building technology education students from the Universities should therefore possess the competencies that will upgrade them as experts in
building construction with pedagogical skill to train skilled craftsman for the construction
industry.
