This study examined the effect of skill acquisition programme on youth employability in Nigeria. For the purpose of this study, undergraduate, graduates and post graduate individuals of Anambra State were used. The main instrument used was the structured questionnaire. 100 respondents were randomly selected from different local governments in Anambra State. Findings revealed that much emphasis on academic excellence, lack of quality skilled trainers, acute shortage of facilities, inconsistent follow up by government and poor funding are problems facing skills acquisition employment in Nigeria. Based on the premises of the findings it was recommended that teachers require professional skills development abilities, competence, years of experience through understanding of the subject matter and effective involvement of the student in the instructional delivery.
