This review thus assesses vocational counselling as a strategic tool for promoting entrepreneurship training among Nigerian youths. The major aim is to trace the origin of “skilless” education system in Nigeria and the attempt to reverse the trend at independence. It expatiated on the new emphasis on entrepreneurship skill acquisition and the place of vocational counselling in ensuring its success. During the course of the study, it was revealed that entrepreneurship education is the stategic tool for national development the world over. Consequently, as the society becomes more and more service-oriented and as graduate unemployment goes high each passing day, Nigerian youths should be orientated towards selfemployment and business ownership. To this end, the new senior secondary school curriculum and entrepreneurship education should be implemented in practical terms in order to inculcate entrepreneurship skills into our youths.
