This study aimed to determine the relationship between the number and type of training programs faculty members had attended and their level of teaching performance in TIPQC. The descriptive correlation research method was used. The data used for the study were the teaching performance evaluation results and the number of training programs each faculty had attended from school year 2005-2006 to 2007-2008. Statistical tools used were frequency, means, standards deviation and Pearson r.
There are different types of training programs designed by the Center of Teaching and Excellence and the office of Human Resource and Development namely, the TANA-based training, the internal and external training programs.
The study showed that the mean teaching performance of the teachers was 92.29. It also revealed that among the different training programs, the highest mean (5.86) was reflected on internal training program. Followed by the mean (5.06) was t he TANA-based training program and the lowest mean recorded was in the external training program (2.47).
There were 28 out of 33 or 84.85% of the teachers who had attended external training programs whose frequencies fall within the interval of 0-3. The computed value of r which is equal to 0.06 showed that there was a negligible positive correlation between external training programs and the teaching performance and it was the only positive correlation.
Among the three training programs, TANA-based training program has the most number of teacher attendance of 17 out of 33 or 51.51% whose frequencies fall within the interval of 4-7. The computed value of r (-0.53) showed that there was a moderately negative correlation between TANA based training program and teaching performance.
On the other hand, the computed value r (-0.47) showed that there was a low negative correlation between internal training programs and teaching performance.
The results of the study also revealed that the computed value of r equal to –0.29 which showed that there was a negligible negative correlation between number of training programs and teaching performance.
Based on the findings of this study, it is concluded that there is a slight relationship between the number and type of training programs attended by full-time faculty member of Technological Institute of the Philippines in Quezon City from school year 2005-2006 to 2007-2008 and their level of teaching performance.
