Abstract: Orientation programmes for newly trained teachers in Yendi Municipality are usually not organised and conducted properly in the Municipality. This research work is aimed at investigating the organisation, conducting and evaluation of orientation programmes for newly trained teachers in the Municipality for the past ten years. The research design was mixed method design and the approaches were qualitative and quantitative. Both teaching staff and officers from the Ghana Education Service in the Yendi Municipality were the target group. Ninety-eight out of four hundred and thirty-five teachers were selected for the investigation using quota and snow ball sampling. Two training officers were selected using purposive sampling. The investigator took information from one hundred respondents. Questionnaire, interview guide and observation check list were the instruments that were used to gather data on teachers experiences regarding orientation programs and its impact on teacher performance. The research data was analysed using descriptive analysis. Results from the investigation showed that needs assessments were not always conducted before the organisation of orientation programmes, orientation programmes were mostly organised in classrooms which were not convenient for participants and facilitators mostly lectured at the programmes. It was concluded that orientation programs for newly trained teachers were not properly organised in terms of the conduciveness of the venues, conducting of needs assessment and presentation methods. Organisers should always conduct needs assessment on head teachers, and trained teachers, orientation programmes need to be organised at very conducive venues and facilitators need to vary their presentation methods during delivery.
