Osita, Fabian Chinedu | Maduka Olisaemeka, D | Nkechi Chukwuemeka-Onuzulike "Attitude and Practices of Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SMEs) Owners towards Apprenticeship in Major Markets in Anambra State, Nigeria" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-4 | Issue-3, April 2020, pp.559-563, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd30564.pdf

This investigation ascertained the reason for the recent preference of salesgirls over apprentice by Igbo small and medium business owners in Anambra State, Nigeria. The study investigated 1330 small and medium business owners in two major markets in Onitsha and Nnewi, Anambra State, through descriptive survey research. Mean statistics were used as a yardstick and a threshold of 3.00 as the acceptance region and less than 3 as rejection region. Findings revealed numerous reasons for preference of salesgirls over apprentice by owners of small/medium scale businesses in some major markets in Onitsha and Nnewi, Anambra State. Among the reasons are that; salesgirls attract more customers than an apprentice, apprentice lures their customers after setting them up in business, that salesgirls are less corrupt than apprentice etc. The study recommended that the engagement of more apprentices than salesgirls should be encouraged. The implications of the findings among others show that Igbo businesses will not outlive more than two decades and pervasiveness of their businesses will start shrinking shortly.
