Effect of Entrepreneurial Education, Entrepreneurial Guidance and Counseling on Entrepreneurial Intentions among Students of Federal College of Education (Technical) Gusau


Plethora of studies asserted that women have a lower level of entrepreneurial intentions as compared to men. The study explores the effect of entrepreneurial education on entrepreneurial intentions among students of Federal College of Education (Technical) Gusau Zamfara State based on the theoretical assertions of the theory of planned behaviour. This quantitative study employed cross-sectional research design to obtain data. The study population comprising the total number of students in Federal College of Education (Technical) Gusau is 4726. The sample size of 356 was derived using Krejcie and Morgan Sampling Table. To decrease sampling error, the sample size was doubled to 712. A self-administered questionnaire was used to solicit information from the respondents using a stratified random sampling technique. Data were analysed using Statistical Software for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 24 for preliminary analysis while structural equation model (Smart-PLS 3.8) was employed to compute the hypothesized relationships. Entrepreneurial education, guidance, and counselling were shown to have significant impact on entrepreneurial intentions. As a result, students at all levels of education may reactivate their entrepreneurial skills through strong and articulated entrepreneurial instruction, guidance, and counselling services, preparing them mentally for a business endeavour before they leave school. The study recommended that: a well-articulated entrepreneurial education, guidance and counseling should offer more than self-employment that will contribute to national development. Government should create enlightenment and exposure of students to entrepreneurial programmes to increase startups and enabling environment that fosters entrepreneurship development
