This paper aims to show how teacher trainees’ perceptions and worthiness of these programs in trainee. A questionnaire was distributed to 66 teachers. Teacher trainees were neutral about the worthiness of the training. Hence, workshop organizers be better informed of the teacher needs by conducting needs assessment. The study recommendations conduct follow-up sessions or visits with the teachers after the workshop to ensure appropriate application of methodology. Heads and coordinators are also to follow up on teachers’ adoption of proper methodology.
