dc.description.abstract The study focuses on staff development in secondary schools in the Eshowe District in order to examine its effectiveness. The aims of the study were as follows: • To determine the nature of staff development; • To determine whether staff development is there at secondary schools in Eshowe District; • To examine the staff development practices in Eshowe District and • To provide recommendations regarding the improvement of staff development programmes and to suggest methods on how schools should initiate staff development programmes. Survey method was used to gather the information. A 50 item questionnaire on provision of staff development were given to 15 high schools' principals of Eshowe District as a way of collecting data about staff development. The Eshowe District was divided into five circuits during the time of investigation. Three principals in each circuit were chosen randomly.
