Abstract

Higher Education Commission launched professional training programmes for secondary school teachers in Pakistan. That is significantly important for teachers’ professional development. In this study, the employers’ satisfaction with secondary school teachers’ practices, who have acquired professional training, was explored by administering questionnaire to 180 school heads and interviewing 14 district educational administrators in Pakistan. Descriptive analysis of the study revealed employers’ partial satisfaction with the practices of professionally qualified teachers. Relatively, the practices of female teachers were more satisfactory than their male counterparts.
