CORBON as a Sector Skills Council
The National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) devolved to CORBON the mandate of a Sector Skills Council under the National Skills Qualification Framework (NSQF); a decision that placed the Council at the heart of skills system in Nigeria’s construction industry. Thus, the mandate enabled CORBON to discharge the roles and responsibilities of a Sector Skills Council (SSC) for the Construction Sector.
CORBON has already developed the National Occupational Standards (NOS) ...for seven construction trades, which have been duly validated by stakeholders in the industry and approved by the NBTE. The NOS is a prerequisite for curriculum development and content delivery, assessment, certification and licensing, as well as remunerations of Construction Artisans.
