At light of this, the study identified the elements that encouraged entrepreneurial interest among students studying bricklaying, block laying, and concrete in technical colleges in Katsina State. The 55 participants for the survey research study were 34 BBC students, 10 BBC teachers, and 9 administrators from the three Government Technical Colleges in Katsina State. The complete population was employed for the study due to the manageable size of the population, which is why the purposive sampling approach was used. A structured questionnaire designed by the researchers under the name Facilitating Entrepreneurship Interest Questionnaire (FEIQ) served as the data gathering tool. The instrument was evaluated by three specialists, and Cronbach Alpha yielded a reliability rating of 0.86. The mean and standard deviation were utilized to answer the study questions, and a 0.05 level of significance ANOVA was employed to test the null hypotheses. The results showed that: family background, student participation in entrepreneurship, exposure to entrepreneurship courses, low profit margin, and inability to identify business opportunity, lack of proper guidance in business, and lack of start-up capital are the factors influencing bricklaying/block laying and concrete students' interest in participating in entrepreneurship in Government Technical Colleges of Katsina State. To encourage and foster the spirit of entrepreneurship in the students, it was suggested that the National Education Research and Development Center create entrepreneurship curricula that would be taught as a standalone subject at technical colleges.</p> 2023-02-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Authors
