The purpose of the study was to determine how staff training and development relate to teachers’ performance secondary schools in Anambra State. It was a survey research. The population of the study comprised 11,921 respondents while the sample for this study is made up of 3,576 respondents made of 76 principals and 1,733 teachers in public secondary schools and 105 principals and 1,662 teachers in private secondary schools in Anambra State. The instrument for data collection was questionnaire developed by the researcher. The instrument was validated by three experts. The reliability of the instrument was determined using the split-half method. Cronbach alpha was used to obtain correlation co-efficient of 0.80 for the instrument. The researcher collected the data with the help of six research assistants. The data collected were analysed using mean, Pearson and t-test. The finding of this study is that there is high, positive and significant relationship between staff training and development and teachers’ performance in secondary schools in Anambra State. It therefore recommended that Anambra State should take the issue of training and development of staff seriously since trained teachers will assist the State to cope with any changes in the school environment.
