The population for the study was 63 administrators from seven tertiary institutions offering Business Education as a programme in Bayelsa and Rivers States. Due to the manageable size of the population, the entire 63 administrators were involved in the study. The instrument for data collection was a well-structured questionnaire. The questionnaire wasface and content-validated by three experts while reliability of the instrument was tested using Cronbach Alpha reliability technique which gave a reliability coefficient of 0.86. Data were collected by administering 63 copies of the questionnaire administered to the respondents with the help of seven research assistants. The data were analyzed using mean, analysis of variance (ANOVA) and t-test statistics. The results of the study identified 14 best practices required by administrators in human resource training and development and 10 best practices required by administrators in human resource motivational packages for implementation of Business education curriculum in south-south Nigeria. Academic qualification of the administrators significantly (p<0.05)influence their mean ratings while gender did not significantly (p<0.05) influence their mean. The identified best practices in human resource training and development and motivation should be packaged for training and retraining administrators for effective service delivery of human resources in Nigerian education system.
