dc.description.abstractMuch attention is currently being given to the provision of quality education in primary schools on global and national scales. Proper investment in the education of a child yields good results at the end of primary school cycle. The central problem of this study was that despite the critical role that the TAC Tutor plays in the provision of quality education through instructional supervision they are faced with several challenges such multipal roles, resourses constraint and lack of or poor training. The study adopted a descriptive survey design covering all 3 zones in the division schools were sampled using stratified sampling techniques. The selection of teachers was done through simple random sampling. Data was collected using three types of instruments. These were a questionnaire each for TAC Tutors, Headteachers and teachers. Checklist for Teachers Resource Centre (TRC) and an interview schedule for District Eduaction Officer (D.E.O). The researcher personally visited each institution and administered the research instrument. Piloting was done in one of the schools to validate the research instruments. This school was not used in the main study. After data collection, quantitative data was analysed using statistical package for social sciences (SPSS) version 12.0 to analyse quantitative data and result on average and percentages presented using tables and figures. Qualitative data was organised into themes, categories and patterns pertinent of the study. The study found out that the current training of TAC tutors did not meet the expectations of headteachers and teachers needed for effective instructional supervision in primary education. The study also revealed that TAC Tutors perform more administrative duties than instructional supervisory duties. In order to address the situation the ministry of education should enact sound policies in regard to school management and supervisionen_US
