The population  for the study was 6,185  teachers from 262 public secondary schools  in  Anambra   State  while  the  sample  of  619  from  48  secondary schools  was  drawn  through  stratified  random   sampling  techniques.   Five research  questions  guided  the study and  five null hypotheses  were tested at

.05  level of significance. The  study  objectives  were  investigated  with data collected  through   the   administration   of  copies   of  researchers’   adapted instrument  titled, “In-Service  Training  Programmess  Questionnaire (ITPQ) and   Teachers’  Job   Performance   Questionnaire  (TJPQ).   The   reliability coefficient  of  0.866   was  obtained   in  test-retest  method   using  Pearson Product  Moment Correlation.  The major  findings of the study showed  that there was a significant strong and positive relationship between  teachers’ job performance  and their participation in in-service training programmes,  a significant relationship  exists between  teachers  attending  seminars,  teacher workshop   training,   teacher   orientation,   conference   attendance  and   job performance  in public secondary  schools in Anambra  State. From the study it  was   concluded   that   in-service   training   programmes    have   a   strong correlation with teacher job performance  in public secondary  schools. Based on   the  findings,  it  was  recommended  that   opportunities   for  in-service training programmes  should be made  available to all categories  of teachers to enable  them keep up with the changes  in the environment.  Stakeholders in  the  education   sector  should   revitalize  the  organization   of  seminars, workshops  and  conferences  for old  and  newly employed  teachers,  it was also recommended that  government  and  school  management should  bear the  financial  burden   of  teachers’  in-service  training  programmes   where necessary  and  the government  should be more  proactive  towards  teachers training by making budgets and allocation for that purpose.
