dc.description.abstract Studies conducted in India, Thailand, Nigeria, Tanzania and Uganda, have revealed that Teacher Attitude (TA), Capacity Building (CB) and Teamwork (TW) enhance Teacher Performance (TP) by about 11.6%. In some parts of Kenya, for instance, Mumias, Vihiga, Kakamega and Nandi Sub Counties, studies have indicated that teachers. who have positive attitude, undergo CB in their various subjects and embrace TW have been found to improve their performance. From 2009 to 2013, the performance of public secondary schools in Ndhiwa Sub County had been generally low with an average mean score of 4.39 compared to Homa Bay (6.20), Rachuonyo South (5.76), Mbita (5.25), Suba (5.18), and Rachuonyo North (4.92). The purpose of this study therefore was to establish the influence of TA, CB and TW on TP in public secondary schools in Ndhiwa Sub-County. Objectives of the study were to: establish the influence of TA on TP; establish the influence of CB on TP and establish the influence of TW on TP in public secondary schools in Ndhiwa Sub-County. A conceptual framework showing the relationship between TA, CB and TWas independent variables and TP as the dependent variable was used. The study adopted descriptive survey and correlational research designs. Study population consisted of 45 Principals, 223 teachers and I Sub-County Quality Assurance and Standards Officer (SCQASO). Saturated sampling was used to sample 40 Principals and 1 SCQASO while simple random sampling was used to sample 141 teachers. Questionnaire and interview schedules were used in data collection. Face and content validity of the instruments were determined by experts in education administration. Reliability of the questionnaire was determined by test re - test method, whereby Pearson's r computed was .81 for teachers at p-value of 0.05 which was considered reliable. Quantitative data was analyzed by use of frequency counts, percentages, means and regression analysis. Qualitative data were transcribed and analyzed in emergent themes and sub themes. The study established that: teachers in public secondary schools in Ndhiwa Sub County had positive attitude which enhanced their performance by 40.2%; the influence of CB on TP was weak and not significant with a coefficient of .114 and p-value of .179; TW had significant influence on TP and it accounted for 31.4% ofTP. It was concluded that: TA had significant influence on TP; CB had no significant influence on TP; and TW had significant influence on TP in public secondary schools in Ndhiwa Sub County. It was recommended that: teachers should be sensitized more on the influence TA on TP because it significantly influenced their performance; teachers who participate in CB should provide . reports on the trainings so that they can be used to evaluate the benefits of these workshops to teachers; and organize more TW activities so as to enhance teacher performance. The study findings are significant to teachers who may be influenced to re examine their attitude in enhancing their performance; and SCQASO in advising teachers on the importance of TA, TW and CB in influencing their performance. en_US
