Abstract:

The study examined the Human Resource Management practices in the Senior High Schools in the Akwapim North District in the Eastern Region of Ghana. Areas examined include recruitment and selection, induction, training and development and supervision. The main purpose of the study was to find out the nature and impact of Human Resource Management practices in the Senior High schools in the Akwapim North District. The study population comprised all teachers, schools heads, assistant school heads and four front-line Directors of Education in the District. In all, a sample size of three hundred and twenty respondents was used for the study. A questionnaire and an interview guide were used to collect the data for the study. The study revealed among other things that a large majority of the respondents were of the view that orientation should be organized for teachers when appointed to teach in the schools. In-service training workshops should also be organized for teachers from time to time to upgrade their skills and knowledge. Based on the findings of the study it was recommended that greater emphasis should be placed on the upgrading of skills and knowledge of teachers through regular training, orientation and development programmes.
