Abstract

The workplace in Nigeria faces new challenges and opportunities. As a matter of fact, the relationship between labour and management on industrial harmony is noted to be at low ebb for the lack of adequate skills and knowledge. Erroneously, it is believed that such skills and knowledge could only be offered the parties at workplaces through the means of conventional schooling system only. Therefore, the study investigated the application of the various non-formal education strategies for empowering the parties at workplaces towards high productivity. A 35-item questionnaire was drawn from 120 respondents randomly selected from the 5 units that formed the Petroleum Product Marketing Board (PPMB) at Ore Deport of NNPC. The instrument was validated using test-retest method. The coefficient of reliability was r=0.86.  Descriptive statistics was used to analyse the data. The result revealed that non-formal education’s strategies were appropriate and effective for workers at workplaces to acquire skills, training and knowledge towards quality human resources.  There is the need for adequate funds for the non-formal education programmes in Nigeria.
