NATIONAL OCCUPATIONAL STANDARDS FOR CONSTRUCTION BUILDING TRADES IN NIGERIA

The Construction industry occupies a very critical position in the Nigerian economic landscape. It is a major contributor to the nation's GDP and one of the biggest employer of labour particularly in the artisanal level. However, there is the prevalence of skills gap in the sector which has impacted on the quality of our buildings. The need to improve the quality of works produced by Nigerian artisans and craftsmen is the primary reason for the development of the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Building Trades in Nigeria.
