E. John Ubah & Osaseri Osaguoua John


The study investigated the attitude of school management personnel towards secondary school guidance and counselling services in Benin. Three research questions and three hypotheses guided the study. The study adopted a descriptive survey design. A sample of sixty-six school management personnel in eighteen schools in three Local Government Areas were selected using the systematic random sampling method. As a survey study, the data were collected through the use of questionnaire, titled School Management Personnel Questionnaire (SMPQ), which was administered on respondents, scored, analyzed and evaluated using the Z-test. The results of the findings showed that factors such as sex, school, and type of school (public or private) affect the attitude of School Management Personnel towards guidance and counselling services, and as a result the null hypotheses were rejected. Based on the findings, it is recommended among others that government should make provision for the regular training of interested school management personnel in guidance and counselling as this will enhance their positive disposition towards guidance and counselling services.
