An effective training programme employs innovative methods and procedures to instruct staff. Every organisation and its management or leaders choose different training methods based on a variety of factors, including the organization's culture and structure, available resources for employee training, trainee characteristics such as individuals, groups, departmental training, general or technical training, and the identified needs that precipitate the training activity. In the present study a cross-sectional study was conducted and a sample of 97 questionnaires were distributed purposively to academic staff in college of Education Biu. However, only 77 filled questionnaires were returned and analysed. The outcome showed that the factor “Mentor-mentee relationship is encouraged in skills development” has the highest mean score whereas, the factor “The Company allows on the job training for its staff” showed the lowest mean score value. Likewise, there is a significant relationship and effects between dependent variable on training method as well as the independent variables.
