This study examined the role of the sandwich in-service educational program of Delta State University, Abraka in developing agricultural science teachers in the state. Data were collected from 895 agricultural science teachers who completed the program between 1989-2004. However, response to the questionnaire was by 391 in-service agricultural science teachers who studied between 1998-2004. The study revealed that over 74% of the agricultural science teachers were from Delta State and teach in the state's school system. The Delta State University sandwich program has therefore played an important role in providing in-service education for agricultural science teachers in Delta State, Nigeria. However, there are still aspects of the sandwich program delivery that need urgent attention to maintain standards such as providing more practical teaching facilities and supplies; updating library and internet facilities, and expanding accommodation facilities for in-service student teachers.
