Abstract

The study aimed at assessing the way Local Government Authorities manage the training function of their employees. Case study design through questionnaires was used for data collection in which one hundred and ninety (190) questionnaires were distributed to respondents. The findings indicate that the majority of the respondents did not have knowledge on the available policy that guide the management of training functions in their District inspite of having adequate policies guiding management of training functions in the Public Service. Training Needs Assessment is not done as per the policy requirement. The current practice at the district is that the identification of staff needs is left to the heads of departments and done adhockly without considering individual and organization challenges. None availability of the training plans, programs and budgets in the study area and thus become a challenging issue; Most of the Local Government Authorities do not monitor and evaluate their training activities. The study thus recommends the Local Government Authorities to abide with a guiding framework for the management of training functions in a decentralized human resource management regime. This will give strength to the LGAs in proper implementation and managing of their training activities. Key Words: Training Functions, Training Needs Assessment, Evaluation, and Policies.
