PROJECT TOPIC- EFFECT OF MANPOWER TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT ON STAFF PERFORMANCE AND RETENTION IN FEDERAL COLLEGE OF EDUCATION (FCE), ZARIA

 

ABSTRACT

Manpower training and development is one of the most important organizational dynamics. It constitute the pivot in which organizational survival is run. However, many organisations have either ignored it or treat policy and programmes in Federal College of Education, Zaria with a view to employees needs and the college needs. Impact of these training programmes on the skills, experience of the staff, using both primary and secondary data, the study, shows that, prior to this time before there was no clear cut, formal and documentation manpower training and development policy structure in F.C.E . It was in 2008, that a unit was erected to take care of staffs development Unit. The study also shows that the training programmes that are majorly emphasized in the college are rather too academic in nature. This includes the various study leaves, probationer leaves, and conferences, seminars and workshops. These training programs as reveals do not address some peculiar training needs on the Job. On the impact of the training programs,, findings shows that the various training programmes as available in F.C.E have not impacted positively in enhancing the skill, knowledge of the staff, their performance on the Job and services delivery. The ineffectiveness of these programs has also led to the problem of staff retention in the college, especially among the highly experienced senior academic staff. However, it was recommended that the college should emphasized on both on the-Job and off-the-Job training for staff of the college, also staff training should be seen as right of every staff, not a privilege as presently been practices in the college. Added to this, effective strategies should be adopted so as to properly evaluate the effect and impact of result of whatever training undergo by staff of the college. Finally, training should not be seen as a routine activity, but as an important aspect of personal management and
it should be a constant and continuous exercise.

CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION

1.0 Background of the study

The role and importance of human resources in the long term viability of any business or non-profit making enterprises cannot be overemphasized. Although, other resources, such as financial, information, physical are also essential, but human resources are virtually boundless in the potential impact of the organization. Manpower is the basis of all resources use and it is the indispensable means of converting other resources to man kind’s use and
benefits. So how well we develop and employ human resources skills is fundamental in deciding how much we will accomplish as a nation.
Manpower is the pivot of every human institution. Even in the developed and industrial nations of the world where the use of machines and
technology is at an advanced stage, manpower is still very essential. Organizations today face many challenges in the management of their human resources –challenges that ranges from constant changes in organizational environment, through unmotivated workforce to shortage of skills manpower even in the face of heavy unemployment syndromes. In the words of Onah (2003:1), what sets most successful organization apart is how they manage human resources.
In the private sector, the ability to achieve and sustain competitive advantage lies within the work force. Without exception, what keeps executives up at night are decisions about human resources that are rather difficult and delicate? How to select and develop future leaders; how to reward good performance; How to control Labour costs, while still treating people fairly. Those challenges depend on the pressure organization face. This no doubt required adequate manpower planning, training and development. There is no doubt that in this advanced age of development and technological break through, manpower must be developed to meet the challenges of modern technology. Trained and well-developed manpower is the essential ingredient for efficiency and effectiveness in any human organization.
Unfortunately, this days, the overwhelming and pervasive role of manpower resources in organization seem to be compromise to the extent of misplacing its role in the achievement of organizational objectives many organization paid little or no attention to issue of training and developing adequate manpower for achieving organizational goal or objective.
An essential instrument for achieving organizational objective is the adequacy and effectiveness of available manpower. Any organization whether (informal or formal, private government) can only boast of effective operation, if it is bless with adequately well-trained and developed manpower.
In Nigeria, many organizations (whether government or private, profit oriented) have been deficient in their operations and the overall effectiveness due to the type or caliber of manpower they have, Federal College of Education , Zaria is not an exemption The Federal College of Education (FCE) Zaria was established to train teachers at the N.C.E level. They also in collaboration with Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria train teachers at B.Ed level. To effectively perform its function, it required well trained developed, professional and dynamic manpower.

1.1 Statement of the Problem

Teacher’s education has in the last few decades received attention in Nigeria. Such cognizance is not unconnected with the recognition by the Nigerian education planners that no education system can rise above the quality of its teachers. In order to produce quality and professionally qualified teachers for the Nigerian educational system, the Nigerian National Policy on Education (1998:3rd edition) holds that Nigerian Certificate in Education (NCE) as the minimum entry qualification into the teaching profession.

Institutions designated to provide the required professional training for teachers at various levels is Colleges of Education, Faculties of Education, Institutes of Education, National Teachers Institute and Schools of Education in the Polytechnics.
Among these institutions is Federal College of Education (F.C.E.), Zaria established in accordance with the National policy on Education with the objective to provide highly motivated conscientious, and efficient classroom teacher for all levels of our education, encourage spirit of enquiry and creativity in teachers, help the teachers to fit into the social life of the community and society at large and to enhance their commitment to national goals, provide professional background adequate for their assignment and to make them adaptable the teachers to changing situations, enhance teacher commitment to teaching profession. (Senior Staff, Condition of Service Handbook).
To achieve these objectives, the college required skilled and other qualitative lectures and other supportive staff. This also could be achieved through an effective and consistence staff training and development policies and programmes. Although the college has various staff training policies and programmes these training programmes hardly have any significant effect on the skill and knowledge and retention of the staff of the college.

It also seem that the issue of staff training and development is treated with levity and neglect and there is that misconception of the aim of staff training as it is seen as a tool or means for staff promotion rather than seeing it from an holistic angle as a tool for staff development, maintenance for greater performance and retention Thus, the question is could there be anything wrong with the staff training and development policies and programmes the college? What is the nature of manpower training and development policy and programs in the college? And are they relevant to the needs of individual staff and the College as a whole? Furthermore, how effective are these manpower training programmes? And what are their impact on the skill, experience and performance of the staff as well as effective service delivery in the college?
It is therefore, pertinent to know that these problems could be of a negative consequence, if they are not adequately addressed. Considering the important role and mandate of the College, (providing quantitative teachers for all levels of educational institution in the country), if those
that are expected to train or produce teachers are not well trained and knowledgeable, there would definitely be a problem. Obviously the achievement of the objectives for which the College was established might be affected. As the popular Adage says, “a blind man (person) can not lead another blind man (person) the result is that both of them will fall into a ditch.
