This study which was on strategies considered effective for teaching job skills by Anambra State secondary school business teachers used the six instructional strategies proposed by Mannison (2009). The study adopted the survey design. Six research questions and six null hypothesis were tested at 0.05 level of significance. A population and sample size of all the 365 business teachers in all the 257 public secondary schools from the six education zones in Anambra State was used for the study. Data was collected for the study through the administration of validated questionnaire on the respondents. A test re-test method was used to determine the reliability of the instrument. The reliability co-efficient of the instrument for the study was found to be 0.80. The mean statistic was used to answer the research questions while z-test statistic was used to test the hypothesis. Findings of the study revealed that business teachers in Anambra State secondary schools considered independent and experimental instructional strategies very effective for teaching job skills, while interactive and indirect instructional strategies were considered generally effective. However, materials/visual aid strategies was considered fairly effective and direct instructional strategies was considered ineffective for teaching job skills at the secondary school level. The implications of the findings have been discussed and conclusions drawn. Relevant recommendations were made towards the improvement of effective teaching of job skills at secondary school level, which include compulsory application of independent and experimental instructional strategies for teaching business subjects in all secondary schools in Anambra State and indeed, Nigeria.
