Abstract:The aim of the study reported in this paper was to determine the perceptions of mathematics teachers who graduated from the Copperbelt Secondary Teachers' Training College (COSETCO) in Zambia between 1977 and 1988, regarding the two-year preservice mathematics teacher training programme. Particularly, the report focuses on the question of whether the programme imparted teaching strategies and classroom management skills. A questionnaire was administered to 227 former students of the college in 1989. The subjects' responses on the 10 Likert type statements show that former students of COSETCO generally perceive the programme as imparting useful different teaching strategies and classroom management skills to its graduates.
