Ediage Grace Melioge "Implications of the Unavailability of Resources on the Implementation of New Curriculums in Teacher Training Colleges in the South West Region of Cameroon" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-5 | Issue-2, February 2021, pp.432-449, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd38454.pdf

This study intended to examine the unavailability of resources on the Implementation of the New Teacher Training Curriculum in South West Region of Cameroon. Questionnaires and focus group discussions were used in collecting data. Questionnaires were completed by 180 teacher trainers drawn from 5 Teacher Training colleges in three divisions. There were two focus groups. The random and purposive sampling techniques were employed in selecting the divisions and the schools. Data collected from the field were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. For descriptive statistics, frequencies, percentages, bar-charts and pie-charts were used. The Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient Value (r) was used to test the hypotheses. The findings revealed that, majority of respondents were in the opinion that resources were rarely or unavailable. The teacher trainers outlined some of the effects and constraints they encountered in the course of implementing the new curriculum. One main recommendation is that, the ministry of secondary education, educators and facilitators of teacher training colleges should ensure that teacher trainers are taught and trained on the new pedagogic practices that are introduced in the course of implementation of a curriculum before implementation begins. They should also ensure that resources are adequately available. Considering the limitations of the study, the researcher made recommendations for more research by employing a multi-dimension in extending to other regions and even carrying out a comparative study between public and private teacher training institutions.
