Women play a very vital role in national development. The role relates to a complete range of socio-economic activities. Rural women are not only users of basic services, bearers and socialisers of children and keepers of the home, they also represent a product potential, which is not being fully tapped. Records have shown that women form more than half the population of Nigeria therefore the development of Nigeria cannot be realized if half of the people are left illiterate with no serious skills and vocational training. Thus it is imperative to investigate the literacy/numeracy and vocational training of Nigerian rural women in recent times.
