Abstract: This study investigated the use of communication and problem-solving skills in the supervision of teachers for quality assurance in technical secondary schools in Nigeria. The study adopted a descriptive survey design with a sample of 1,980 teachers and principals using purposive sampling. The instrument for data collection was a questionnaire titled communication and problem-solving skills questionnaire. The data collected were analysed using mean, standard deviation and t-test statistics. The result indicated that principals were deficient in the application of accepted communication and problem-solving skills. Based on the findings, it was concluded that government, through states Ministry of Education should work in collaboration with the technical school boards to organize meaningful training on communication and problem-solving skills for principals for effective supervisory skill acquisition and utilization for quality assurance in public secondary schools in Nigeria.
