The study is titled cognitive apprenticeship as a determinant of productive learning among out-of-school emerging adults engaged in mechanic work in Buea Municipality. Indicators of the study include, coaching, scaffolding, and executive functioning. The specific objectives are; To determine the extent to which coaching impact productive learning among out-of-school emerging adults engaged in mechanic work in Buea Municipality; To find out the extent to which scaffolding impact productive learning among out-of-school emerging adults engaged in mechanic work in Buea Municipality; To ascertain the extent to which executive functioning impact productive learning among out-of-school emerging adults engaged in mechanic work in Buea municipality. Methodologically, the study design used was quasi-experimental research design. The population of the study was made up of 12 apprentices between the ages 18 to 25 in mechanic garages, and 4 trainers. The study took place in Buea in Cameroon in two mechanic garages. The instruments used for data collection were questionnaire, observational checklist and interview guide. The procedure for data collection was through observing and training the expert on psycho-pedagogy skills who later trained the apprentice and they were later tested. Pretest and posttest was tested. The study was carried out in two mechanic workshops. Each of the garages had experimental and control groups. The sampling technique was purposive sampling technique. Quantitative data was entered using EpiData Version 3.1 (EpiData Association, Odense Denmark, 2008) and analyzed using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) Standard version, Release 21.0 (IBM Inc. 2012). Data collected from the field were subjected to both descriptive and inferential statistics. For the descriptive data, frequency distribution tables and charts were used to present and describe the data obtained. Cohen’s d was used to compare assert significant difference of the inferential statistics. The finding was as follow; coaching experimental group ha total mean 8.7 at pretest and it rose to 11.9 at posttest and productive learning had a mean of 9.7 at pretest and it rose to 13.4. It was recommended that coaching, scaffolding and should constantly be applied in mechanic garages by the trainers so that apprentice can gain knowledge, aptitudes, skills, competencies and become productive.
