This study investigated the influence of retraining programme on self-esteem of primary school teachers in Ebonyi State of Nigeria. The study was guided by one research question and a null hypothesis. A purposively selected sample of 775 primary school teachers who attended capacity building retraining programme provided the data collected using an 18-item questionnaire developed by the researchers and face-validated by three test specialists in the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. Mean, SD (standard deviation), and t-test analysis tested at 0.05 probability level were used for data analysis. Findings indicate that retraining programme influences teachers' self-esteem positively with urban teachers having higher self-esteem (x = 3.16) than the rural (x = 2.96). The null hypothesis testing indicates that there is no significant difference between the mean scores of the urban and urban primary school teachers with regard to the influence of the retraining programme on teachers' self-esteem (t-cal = 0.15; df = 773; P = 0.05; critical-t = 1.96). Based on these findings, it was recommended among others that Nigeria teachers are regularly retrained to help enhance their self-esteem towards teaching profession. (Contains 2 tables.)
