Kyalo Abigail Manthi, James M. Kilika, Linda Kimencu


This study sought to establish how Human Resource Management practices predict tutor turnover intentions in primary Teacher Training colleges (PTTCs) in Kenya. The objectives of the study were: to establish the influence of Training, Compensation, Career development and Performance management on tutor turnover intentions in PTTCs in Kenya. The scope of the study was the Nairobi Metropolitan region. Multi stage sampling was used to obtain a sample size of 152 respondents where the actual response rate was 74.3%. The findings of the study showed that training, compensation, career development and performance management were poorly practiced and that they significantly and negatively predict tutor turnover intentions in PTTCs as they collectively accounted for 28% variation in the experienced turnover intentions among the tutors. The findings raise both theoretical and practical implications for underpinning HRM practice, behavioral science theories and personnel administrative responsibilities to college principals respectively. The study calls on future research to consider the contingent effects of the tutors' demographic characteristics and the contextual factors surrounding HRM Practice in the Colleges.
