ABSTRACT

As a result of increasing Ialowledge about how teaching and learning

occur, new techniques are constantly emerging of which the classroom tcachcr

must be aware. His or her methods will remain static and ineffective if he or

she is not exposed to new ideas through in-service training.

The study was to evaluate in-service training (INSET) organized for

training college teachers based on some factors like content, time duration,

motivation, finance and instructional methods that affect the organization of

INSET.

Data were collected using questionnaires and interviews. A total of 120

respondents were selected through purposive and random sampling. The

respondents included 78 males and 22 female teachers from training colleges

and 20 training personnel from both Ashanti and Brong Ahafo regions. All

responded to the questionnaires given to them.

The study showed that: 65% of the Training College Teachers attended

INSET; the contents of INSET were beneficial to the teachers; the best time

{or the organization of INSET was vacation; the duration of INSET was short;

the Ghana Education Service (GES) and NGOs were the main sponsors of

INSET; teachers who attended INSET were not well motivated; and the most

popular instructional method used by training persOlillel at INSET was

demonstration lesson followed by discussion. Based on the conclusions some

recommendations were made for improvement of future in-service training.
