Abstract:This study examines the lifelong learning processes of private tertiary institutions in Nigeria. One of the most unique attributes of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is the ability to simplify processes and aid efficiency. It makes information available at an amazing speed and provides the enablement for world-class task delivery. Institutions are not run the way they used to some decades back. This is attributed to the evolution of ICT. Since new technologies evolve at astonishing speed, it should be expected that tertiary institutions should not only learn of them, but also adopt them in their administrative processes. This brings to the fore the role of staff members in ensuring the success of this process. This study, therefore, examines the processes adopted by selected tertiary institutions to train and retrain their staff to be able to keep up with ICT trends using multinomial logistic model approach. It is also explores the frequency and nature of such trainings.
Keywords: Nigeria, ICT, lifelong-learning.
