Abstract

This study evaluated the manpower-training program for teaching personnel in Mid-western Nigeria by the National Teachers Institute. Overall 240 participants involved in the training program who were randomly selected from the area constituted the sample for the study. A questionnaire designed by the authors was the major instrument used for data gathering. The analyses of the results obtained showed that the programs are fairly effective in upgrading the skills and knowledge of the participants. It was also discovered that the programs have impacted on the level of performance of the participants in the area. It was recommended inter alia that the institute should be adequately funded to enable it achieve its mandate to the fullest. Since the programs are considered relevant to the training needs of the participants, it would be proper to do everything humanly possible to consolidate the gains of the programs.
