Factors Affecting Secondary School Based In - Service Training In West District Secondary Schools- Zanzibar

By Maulid Omar Hamad


This study investigated factors that affect Secondary School Based In-service Training. Ten (10) government secondary schools from Unguja West District were used as case study. The study had the following specific objectives (i) to assess the capability of secondary schools on handling School Based In-service Training. (ii) to assess factors which hinder the provision of secondary School Based In-service Training. ( iii) to determine stakeholder opinions on how secondary School Based In-service Training can be improved. The study used both qualitative and quantitative approach on data collection, analysis and interpretation. The study revealed that, secondary schools have low capability to conduct School Based In-service Training due to lack of support from other school stakeholders and ineffective school leadership on administering SB-INSET. On the other hand the study revealed that the main factors affecting SB-INSET included; lack of skills and knowledge on SB-IN SET, negative attitude towards SB-INSET among many stakeholders and; inability of schools to find appropriate time for SB-INSET. The study suggests that as a strategy to promote INSET, teachers’ successful attendance to the programme should be made a criterion for teachers’ promotion and motivation. Based on the findings, the study recommends that the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training should plan for change which will equip secondary schools with supportive work environment in order to provide schools with authority and power for planning and implementing School Based In-service Training
