ABSTRACT                                                      

This study was carried out to examine the perceived instructional competencies of teachers for the implementation of senior secondary school chemistry curriculum in Ikot Ekpene Education Zone of Akwa Ibom State. The study was guided by five specific objectives, five research questions were posed for the study and five null hypotheses were formulated and tested at 0.05 level of significance. The study adopted descriptive survey research design, the population of the study was 1056 comprising 126 chemistry teachers and 930 senior secondary II Chemistry students. The sample of this study was 211 comprising of 25 chemistry teachers and 186 senior secondary II Chemistry students using simple random sampling technique. The instrument for data collection was the researcher designed questionnaire titled “Instructional Competencies of Teachers for the Implementation of Chemistry Curriculum Questionnaire (ICTICCQ)”. The instrument was validated by three experts. The reliability of the instrument was 0.74  derived using Cronbach Alpha statistic. Data collected were analysed using mean and standard deviation for research questions while the hypotheses were analysed using t-test at 005 level of significance. The result of the findings revealed that teachers’ possessed competencies in content/subject matter, used of instructional methodologies among others. Based on the findings it was recommended that Government of Akwa Ibom State should ensure recruitment of qualified chemistry teachers so as to maintain teacher/students ratio of 1:40  recommended for secondary schools by the National Policy on Education of Nigeria for effective classroom management and implementation of chemistry curriculum and also improve on the conditions of service for teachers especially chemistry teachers at the secondary school level, the teachers should be paid regularly as at when due including all other allowances to ensure effective implementation of chemistry curriculum.
