CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1    Background of the study
For many years, the idea of stenography now typewriting came into focus, they two terms that have gained ground as need for secretaries in the office increased and the need for efficiency in the way, office matters and procedures were carried out.
The growth and development of technology has favoured in no small measure the stenographer’s and typist who learnt the skill of typewriting and shorthand among other subjects.
In Nigeria, stenography and typewriting was regarded as commercial education, came with the arrival of missionaries and colonial business enterprise.  They wanted the people who can type their correspondence and mail them.  And immediately people that are trained in the commercial subject were employed.
In the `1960’s, the school began to boom, private individual began to invest in th4em.  Ukeje (1979) remarked that one  of the  things that did not favors the expansion of vocational education in the  country is the experience that Nigeria had over the past fifteen or more years on employment opportunities as they occurred for people with different types of education.  For the past decade people have viewed education form utilization angle.  Although commercial education offered such as wonderful prospects as pointed out by (Ukeje 1979) and many other people continued to neglect the profession and say all word of thins against it.
Then the question of where these jobs exist which was bound to be answered, becomes important and prompted this study.  Again do they exist, what are the qualifications for them?  Moreover, have these assertions been over taken by time and circumstance?
To answer these questions in Nigerian, a lot of factors are to be considered, one of such factors had been an idea, which seems to be generally held, and which is that some business administration cannot distinguish between functions of secretaries and that of the clerical officers/typist.  17 assumed that some business administrators assign the position and function to them arbitrarily and what they do is wrong.
Another point is that demand and supply curve in relation to sentences employment  has not reaches an equilibrium and thus has generated concern among the producer and consumers alike.  The school which supplied of the  group of workers needed to have its record of  enrollments assets.  Only the polytechnics and few universities offer this course.
Presently, many people are learning to type on their won and it seems they are going to constitute some threats to the secretaries employment opportunities, people can to their functions to a little extent without experiencing their professional training, then, something must be done.
Again, it will be important to fine only how far government   have been involved in the affairs of secretaries.
It is important to emphasize have that another problem which is faced by the  secretaries will be the improvement on his/her professional qualifications.
