Kankam Boadu, Bernard Yaw Sekyi Acquah

This study aimed to assess the training needs of tutors in the colleges of education in the Central Region of Ghana. A total of 111 Colleges of Education tutors participated in the study. Data obtained were analyzed using descriptive statistics. It was evident in the study that tutors find out about programmes from friends and coworkers. It was also revealed that most tutors had a favourable attitude towards available staff development opportunities.

Based on the findings of the study, it was recommended that periodic orientation programmes should be organized by College of Education authorities to update College of Education tutors on available training programmes which are relevant to the performance of their academic duties.
