The study sought to identify the motivational needs of Building technology teachers in technical colleges in Niger state. Among the specific purpose of the study were: The study identified the deficiencies, growth needs and problems of Building technology teachers in carrying out their duties, Literature was reviewed pertinent to the study. The design of the study was descriptive survey. The study covered all the building technology teachers in the twelve educational zones of the state. The population of the study is 125 Building technology teachers. There was no sampling since the population is not so large. Well structured questionnaire was used which was made up of the three sections. The cronbach Alpha method was used and the data obtained was analyzed using mean statistic. The findings revealed that housing transportation and medical facilities were some of the deficiencies needs of the respondents while promotion, in –service training , office accommodation were some of the growth need of the respondents and some of the problems Building technology teachers faced, were lack of classrooms and laboratories. The implication of this finding was that lack of motivation of the Building technology teachers will result in poor performances of students. Some of the recommendations made were, Building technology teachers, parents and the whole community, should be involved in decision making concerning the students and in-services course made compulsory.
Background of the Study
The most important element in an organization is human resources or labour. Employee motivation is the greatest impacts that spur the labour to high productivity leading to growth in modern organization. For an organization to successfully motivate its employees, it has to cater for the needs of its staff. In the act of teaching there are two parties, the teachers and the learners who work together in source program designed to modify the learner’s behavior and experiences in some ways. It is necessary to begin with observation about the teacher and his needs(Irowi, 1999).
Maslow (2004) proposed a hierarchy of human needs based on two groupings: deficiency needs and growth needs. Maslow said all human beings take all the needs to organizational settings. Thus, the principal who wishes to elicit the best helping the Building technology teachers achieved these needs. These needs are physiological, safety, belonginess and love, esteem and self actualization needs. What is required of a teacher is to be capable of sharing work program with students designed to modify their behavior and experience. This means making relevant experience available to the students at the right time. The teacher can do all these if his needs are met or provided for.
Statistics from Ministry of Education (2001) has shown that Niger state has 149,751 male students 54,355 female students. 283 post – primary schools, out of which only 25 are boarding schools. The number of technical teachers are 4,272 male and 2,037 female Building technology teachers. The technical teachers are responsible for assessing, to do all these jobs well, their needs must be provided for.
Irowi (1999) observed that a teacher who is poorly trained or by the virtue of his low job satisfaction due to poor condition of service and other related welfare is that the product job at teaching, the result is that the product from such a teacher would be low quality. As a result of inadequate motivation, technical teachers are demoralized in undertaking their duties.
Although many Building technology teachers are dedicated but due to the lack of the training programs to keep them up to date in the new innovation in teaching methods, it set a limitation to their performance and student achievement. For Building technology teachers to be effective they need to be motivated, trained, supplied with the necessary teaching and learning materials. Due to the enormous importance of the technical teachers in any educational system, there is the need to find how to improve upon the quality of the Building technology teachers and areas where improvement is needed to enhance their performance so as to raise the quality of education in schools.
Statement of the Problem
The background had shown that innovation is an aspect of workers life that boost their morals to be more committed and dedicated to work. Comparison of financial stand of Building technology teachers in Kano state and Zamfara state show that take – home salaries of NCE newly employed Building technology teachers is N29,740 while B.Ed N32,195 while Zamfara NCE Building technology teachers is N24,690 and B.Ed N38,451. In Niger state, NCE newly employed teacher get N20,680 and B.Ed N32,400. From the above statement Building technology teachers salaries in Niger state is low.
Due to this low motivation in Niger state, it has affected performance of students in technical colleges examination in the past five years which is 35.98% (Education resources center, 2010).
From this it is imperative that a study should be carry out on motivational needs of Building technology teachers in Niger state.

The findings of this study will also help the students to acquire basic skills to meet the industrial requirement that can face the challenges of the world of work occasioned by dynamic technological changes.
The findings of the study will also benefits the society as the students will acquire relevant skills to the world of work and reduce the level of unemployment in the society. It help to retain and improve the job opportunities, retraining and career progress of building technology teachers and students.
The following research questions were formulated to guide the study:-
1. What are the growth needs of Building technology teachers in Niger state?
2. What are the problems affecting the performance of building technology teachers in technical colleges in Niger state?
3. What are the motivational strategies for improving the performance of building technology teachers in technical colleges in Niger state?
Scope of the Study
This study focuses on motivational needs of building technology teachers in technical colleges in Niger state.
