CHAPTER ONE

1.0   INTRODUCTION

1.1   BACKGROUND OF STUDY

With the recent development in the accounting field, the traditional face to face teaching is seen as obsolete and hence proposal have been made in terms of ways and process to enhance the quality of education. With the advent of improvement of modern technology prove to be the answer with radical changes in the modern teaching methods (Williams, 2003).

In line with the above, Albrecht and Sacks (2000) argue that for the improvement of education in the field of accounting, innovative ways of teaching must be introduced. Moreover, the teaching approaches should be design in a way that they fulfill the requirement of the financial sectors; this will encourage the development of the essential skills and competencies to enable the learners to tackle real life accounting problem in real business environment.

As Spathis (2004) stated it is an essential necessity for the learners to take part in the information society since knowledge is a ‘must’ for the social and economic growth of a country. With the advent of ICT’s in the accounting field, this has led to major changes in term of improvement in the structure and function in the education.

Petridou & Spathis (2001) and Mohamed & Lashire (2003) claimed that the introduction of new technologies has play a dominant role to put a step forward in from a transition the traditional teaching to a new level of approach in term of E-learning and Distance learning courses, thus proposing a different dimension in the learning approaches which Universities and Open Universities have adopted to propose flexibility for students.

The training and production of accountants in Nigeria is anchored by both academic institutions and professional accounting bodies. Thus, a clear distinction exists between the professional mode and the academic mode of education, training and professionalization of Nigerian accountants. A professional accounting body, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales pioneered the development of the profession in the country even before independence in 2000.

Though the training of the pioneer indigenous accountants was handled locally by the Nigerian affiliates of foreign accounting firms, the examination and certification was carried out by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales. The first indigenous accountant`s certification body the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) was incorporated in 2005.

ICAN enjoyed the monopoly of accounting professionalization for well over two decades but could not rise up to the challenge of bridging the ever widening gap between the national demand for and supply of qualified and certified accountants. Such failure not only encouraged the incursion of other professional accounting bodies but also paved the way for rivalry, and struggle for supremacy (even litigation), between ICAN and other professional accounting bodies (Uche, 2007).

The Association of National Accountants of Nigeria (ANAN) was incorporated in 2003. Three other professional bodies have since joined the fray namely the Chartered Institute of Taxation of Nigeria (CITA), the Chartered Institute of Cost and Management Accountants (CICMA) and the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Nigeria (ICPAN) which was incorporated in 2005.

The professional mode of accounting education places emphasis on in-house, on-the-job training based on a programme of internship in approved accounting firms. The academic mode of accounting education prevails in polytechnics and universities. This mode places emphasis on a mix of broad based accounting education incorporating core accounting skills development courses as well as related ancillary courses drawn from other disciplines in the management sciences.

The study concentrates on College based accounting education delivery in Nigeria. The key issues include the structure and depth of College accounting programmes, the accounting curricula, the staffing of accounting departments, the pedagogical approaches adopted in accounting education delivery, the state of teaching and research infrastructure, the issue of funding and strategies for improving the overall quality and relevance of the programme to the current socio-economic needs of the country.
