Attempts are made in this paper to investigate the relationship between the students achievement in basic science subjects chemistry physics biology and theirperformance in Leather Technology courses leather chemistry physical Testing Hideskin improvement. In order to establish if their achievement in ordinary level OL science subjects is a pointer to good performance in Leather Technology core- courses.The production of Leather is long and complicated process and certainly not one can be embarked upon without specialized skills. These are the reason for the inclusion of sciences courses in Leather Technology programmes. Correlational research design was adopted to systematic investigate the performance of students in leather technology core courses in relation to their achievement in OL science subjects using Spearmans Rank order correlation coefficient. The results revealed positive correlation between OL science subjects and leather technology core courses. It is empirically established from the study that students with good basic knowledge of science perform better in leather based course. The role of basic science subjects in leather technology programmes cannot be over emphasized for it forms the basis for studying of Hides Skins processing. Therefore it was concluded that basic science taught in secondary schools should be specialized toward students needs career.
