Every information technology (IT) driven society is expected to experience some dynamism in the way things are done and in the quality of the goods and services available unto them for use. It is against this backdrop that, a curriculum innovation would help to fashion learning experiences to be given under a close supervision, which would reflect changes in the aspirations and needs of the society. With the advent of IT, the secretarial world of work has experienced several changes from the use of manual machines to perform her operations to the new electronic ways of doing things.

The paper threw light into why curriculum innovation in the secretarial program is of paramount importance; specific areas that would need to be revisited, and recommendations were made, which if employed would go a long way to ensuring curriculum relevance of the secretarial programme, as it would be producing men and women who can compete favorably with their foreign counterparts and also a liberation from curriculum obsolescence.
