This study was designed to investigate on the impact of on the job training on employee’s performance in secondary schools of the Songea Municipality in the Ruvuma region. It was about on-work training among teachers in Songea’s Secondary Schools. The sample selected for the impact study of training was sixty four (64), of which we had thirty three (33) male teachers and thirty one (31) female teachers. This study has revealed that trained employees are more willing to continue working in the same organization after being trained than those who are not yet trained. One big result is that having Mastery Specific Skills one needs to successfully perform the tasks related to his/her present job after training and seeing a Career Path in one’s Present Job are strongly correlated. Hence, we confirm that on-work training is a key factor to good performance, career path and job security. Once an employee is trained, he gains opportunity to enhance his performance, his current job has direct impact on achieving the organizational objectives, his job performance outcomes are consistent with the goals of the organization and his good performance on his job gives him/her formal appreciation by the higher ups. The implications of the distinctive effect of employee training and other human resource practices on job performance measures and employee’s carer path were found remarkable. Generally, the findings of this study were found reliable with the studies conducted by other researchers on the contribution of human resource practices related to the job performance and employee’s career.
