It was a follow-up study of teachers training in comparative perspective. The study was delimited to all Trained Graduate Teachers (TGTs) working in Federal Government Secondary Schools of Islamabad who received in-service training during years 2005-2009. Out of 1265 TGTs 32 INSET TGTs (with in-service education and training) and 32 NON-INSET TGTs (without in-service education and training), 64 colleague teachers, 256 students and 32 head teachers were selected as sample. One observation schedule and three five point Likert rating scales were used to collect the data on four selected parameters i.e. Classroom Management, Teaching Methodology, Use of AV Aids, and Evaluation Techniques. Mean scores, t-test and SD were applied. Out of five, four null hypotheses were rejected at 0.05 level of significance. It was concluded that the performance of INSET TGTs was comparatively better than the NON-INSET TGTs. The recommendations for training for working teachers and improvement of training contents were made.
