2014 dissertation for MA in International Human Resources Management. Selected by academic staff as a good example of a masters level dissertation. The study focuses on training and development of teachers in the public education sector. The study will use a case study research design. This research design is important for this purpose because it allows the researcher to test whether theories on training and development are applicable in practice as they are said to be in theory. Additionally, the research design allows the researcher to explore the issues under research in an in-depth manner (Mustafa, 2008, p.17). The study will focus on teachers in public schools in Nigeria. The choice of this study population is guided by the need to correlate the findings of the study with governmental policies in teacher training and development in the public education sector. \ud In order to collect the information required for the study, the researcher will use a questionnaire. The questionnaire will be developed to collect information in a quick but effective manner (Cargan, 2007, p.116). The variables of the study will be gender, the highest level of education, age, and length of stay at the school, previous trainings and their impact on ability to teach. Through a questionnaire, the researcher will get information on the take of the study population on the importance of training and development on their teaching career.\ud The data from the study will be analyzed using the Statistical Package for\ud Social Sciences. It is an appropriate tool for data analysis because it enables the researcher to manipulate the data in order to draw correlations between the variables of the study (Griffith, 2010, p.91). The data from the study will offer insights in the formulation of policies on training and development in the public education sector. Additionally, the case study will test the working of policies on teacher development and training and the attitudes of the teachers towards the programs.
