Nigeria, like any other country in transition is faced with a lot of economic challenges. The situation is aggravated by the current global economic crisis. There is an urgent need for the Government to promote the educational sector in order to overcome the present limitations. It is the opinion of this paper that for a meaningful national development to occur technical and vocational education technology must be taken seriously at all levels. The study was based on a review of related literature which was aimed at highlighting the obvious implications of the global economic crisis on the curriculum implementation in technical and vocational education technology. Findings revealed that the implementation would meet some challenges due to inadequacies in the Nigerian educational system. The paper concluded that the implementation policy requires some human and physical resources for it to succeed.
