Five NCE Vocational/technical teacher training institutions and their 176 teachers took part in study. The research data was collected using questionnaire as instrument for data collection. Mean score was used for analyzing the data. The results, among other things, showed that accreditation in the institutions led to the employment of staff with the relevant qualifications. It did not result to the employment of adequate number of staff, improved provision of adequate number of classrooms, departmental libraries, workshops and laboratories with relevant facilities as seats, books, journals and quality tools and equipment.
