dc.description.abstract The paper examined the impact of the implementation of security education curriculum on students’ security consciousness in Nigeria. Descriptive approach was adopted in carrying out this research work. Two research objectives guided the study: Examining the extent to which security education improves the level of students’ security consciousness and ascertaining the extent of the availability of resources for the implementation of security education curriculum. The target population was comprised of junior secondary school students in Nigeria. Fagge, Nasarawa and Ungwaggo Local Government Areas in Kano State were sampled for this study, using stratified sampling technique. Furthermore, seven secondary schools were randomly selected of which four hundred and thirteen (413) students were randomly selected. The instrument used for data collection was a questionnaire entitled “Questionnaire for the Study of the Implementation of Security Education Curriculum” (QISEC) and the data collected was analysed using descriptive statistics of arithmetic mean. Findings revealed that students of security education curriculum are not security conscious. Moreover, the resources for the implementation of the security education curriculum in junior secondary schools are not adequate. The researcher recommends that seminars/workshops should be organized for security education teachers to enrich their knowledge in the field of security education. Security education should also be introduced as a course at A-level in order to produce professional teachers in the field. Furthermore, the supply of resources for the implementation of curricula in secondary schools in Nigeria needs to be increased. en_US
