Teachers’ Training Needs in Inter-school Violence Handling (Published)

This paper comes to explore teachers’ views on their training needs in the inter-school violence handling. The quantitative approach and the questionnaire tool were selected. The target population was the primary education teachers of Achaia Prefecture, and the sample consisted of 100 teachers who were selected by convenient sampling. Based on the findings, participants believe that incidents of school violence occur in their school units moderately. However, the existence of such incidents is a deterrent to the functioning of the school, thereby emphasizing the need for further training in related matters. They wish to be trained in topics such as Counseling, School Psychology, Social Psychology, Intercultural Education and Cognitive Psychology through the processes of in-school training and training sessions. The appropriate coordinator of the educational program is the Regional Centers for Educational Planning and the Universities. Regarding the degree of motivation for participating in a similar training program, the link between theory and teaching and the more complete response to modern school requirements are considered very important.

In any institution, the guidance and counselling department is deemed so crucial because it has an impact on the growth and the provision of quality educational programs. The impact of guidance and counselling in schools depends on the availability of resources, both human and physical and the support of the head teachers (Lutomia & Sikolia, 2008). This entangled with proper teacher counselor training makes guiding and counseling contributes to the great success in schools. It is therefore important for every school to have a working guidance and counselling program to be able to support the students who need assistance for their growth and discipline in schools. Parents must also be included in the program for it to function properly (Mutie & Ndambuki, 1999). This paper focuses on identifying teacher counselor and their levels of training in secondary schools in Kamariny Division of Keiyo District. The author employed a descriptive survey design targeting the teacher counselors in the selected schools. The population of the study comprised 10 teacher counselors. Purposive sampling was used to select the teacher counselors. A questionnaire was used in data collection after which the data were analyzed with the aid of Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 12.5 for Windows. Data was analyzed using descriptive statistics in the form of frequencies and percentages. The findings showed that the teacher counselors are not adequately trained to counsel the students in the secondary schools. Many of them have attended only workshops and seminars on guidance and counselling. The paper therefore recommends that each secondary school in Kenya should have a well trained guidance and counselling teacher to assist the students deal with existing and emerging challenges.

The study stresses the urgent need for the regular training and development of the Senior Administrative Staff in the University of Nigeria. This will contribute significant in the production of high quality manpower as well as provide the assistance to academic by specialization. Most of them have stayed on their jobs for 20years or more without attending a single training and development course or workshop. They have risen to their respective levels of incompetence. Invariably, they are redundant hence the colossal wastage as waves of fashion or new skills pass them over without notice. They rely heavily on their past or obsolescence knowledge and display old fashioned skills that contribute minimally to the attainment of the organizational goals, their zone-of-indifference becomes very narrow and survive on the basis of political membership or solid protection racket. Their style of membership gives them ‘immunity’ from any disciplinary action. They pass as time-serves and still move fast through the ranks by way of promotion or favour. This class of staff lack commitment to contribution or effectiveness. They cheat other staff they work with. The few who stick to the rules but do not belong experience the fact that good performance on their part will not merit them good evaluation by their bosses. They merely complain of inefficiency to mask their envy against employees who have pull. To upturn this obvious disservice and contribute effectively staff members have to be recruited on the basis of merit or technical qualification and regularly trained and developed to apply current skills and techniques to increase the ratio of output/input, towering cost and improving quality as well as expected revenue and also increasing profit.
