This study investigated the demand and supply of qualified teaching manpower in secondary schools in Ekiti State, Nigeria. As an ex-post facto and descriptive survey, the study population comprised all the 170 secondary schools in the State. The sample was identical with the population as all the schools were involved in the study. The supply of teachers was delimited to higher institutions within Ekiti State and higher institutions in neighbouring States. In terms of teacher supply, the 2 higher institutions in Ekiti State were chosen. Out of the 30 higher institutions in the neighbouring States, 16 were also chosen, thereby giving a total of 18 higher institutions. The method of selection was by multi-stage, purposive and stratified random sampling techniques. The instrument used to collect data for the study was an inventory while the data collected were analyzed using frequency counts and percentages. It as found that the annual enrolment growth rate in the schools was 5.6% while the teacher-student ratio was 1:30. The supply of qualified teachers did not match the demand for them in all the schools. It was projected that an additional 3,585 teachers would be required by the year 2016. Based on the findings, it is recommended that the State government should endeavour to increase the supply of qualified teaching manpower into all the schools in order to match the demand for them.
