Abstract: The study was carried out to check the role of training need, training content, teacher performance, instructional strategies and training assessment on training effectiveness. The research study utilized Quantitative method approach. The Kirkpatrick training model was selected for evaluation of training. A total of 710 science teachers from all the seven divisions and 26 districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa were trained. The study was restricted to 248 science teachers as stated in the table given by Krejcie (Krejcie& Morgan 1970). SSTs are categorized as SST (General) and SST (Science); SST (science) is further classified in two categories namely SST (Mathematics- Physics) and SST (Biology-Chemistry). Training was conducted by PITE in 2016, with the assistance of DFID and ASI for both the science categories. These science teachers were selected randomly out of the defined population for the study using simple random sampling. The questionnaire was applied to gather data from the participants in the post training situation. Five point‟s Likert scale questionnaire was used to collect the primary data from trained teachers. The effectiveness of the training was judged from various angles. Findings of the study revealed that training is having positive effect on the performance of teachers in terms of improved knowledge and practical skills about latest instructional and assessment strategies. 88% respondents were found to be satisfied with the training program and agreed that a trained teacher ensures holistic development of the students. The training program was found to have developed knowledge and practical skills as well as aesthetics sense in the teachers and trained them to use low cost materials and AV aids to achieve SLOs. However, the study found dissatisfaction among the respondents about the follow up of the training, the selection of venues and selection criteria of the teachers.
