Out of the population, 285 teachers, 35 head teachers and 40 LGEA officials were randomly selected from 35 primary schools. Therefore, the total number of 360 respondents was served as a sample for the study.

The formulated hypotheses of the research were tested using Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and analyzed the data at 0.05 significant level. The findings of the study revealed that there were regular staff development programmes through conferences and workshops for teachers, while there were no regular in-service training and symposia for teachers in primary schools in Zaria metropolis, Kaduna State. In view of this, the study recommended that government should double their efforts for staff development programmes through in-service training, symposia and mentoring for primary school teachers in Zaria metropolis, Kaduna State.
