This study investigated the teaching effectiveness of prevocational subject teachers using descriptive survey research design. A total of 205 teachers selected through purposive and simple random sampling technique participated in the study. Three research questions were raised to guide the study. A validated instrument titled 'Teaching effectiveness scale' was used for data collection. The t-test of significance and simple percentage were the major statistical tools employed in the data analysis. Findings from the study revealed; a relatively low teaching effectiveness among prevocational subject teachers. It was recommended among others, that government and agency responsible for teacher development should put in place an action plan to enhance the capacity of teachers in the use of ICT-driven pedagogy, modern classroom practices and assessment techniques; while the technical teacher training scheme should be resuscitated. This will position the country towards the realization of vision 2020 through prevocational education.
