Based on the findings and conclusions drawn from this study
the following recommendations are endorsed;
i. Young instructors should be motivated to study further
in the graduate school, they should be given enough
time
and
schedule
to
pursue
their
graduate
studies
without jeopardizing their responsibilities to their
students.
If possible, scholarship must be open so that they can
comply with the
requirements
of
R.A.

j. Equity in the distribution of opportunities to attend
in-service training must be considered. There must be
transparent schedule of attendance of instructors In
different levels of training so that everybody will
have the chance to the outside world” of the academe.
k. Sub-professional passers should be encouraged to the
examination
suited
to
their
position
as
college
instructors. A time frame for them to pass must be
agreed upon so that commitment can be instilled.
A similar study is recommended but of different groups of
respondents which should include the members of the sectoral
