Abstract: The purposes of this study were: to study the perceptions of instructors and administrators and the extent of agreement between their perceptions of content of in-service education programs;* to determine what constitutes current in-service education programs for occupational education instructors in technical institutes and community colleges in North Carolina; to examine the degree of agreement between the instructors and administrators on what should be the purposes of the in-service education programs; to indicate the extent of agreement, between the instructors' and administrators' perceptions of both the purposes and content of in-service education programs as they relate to the guidelines derived from the review of relevant literature. Relevant literature on in-service education was reviewed, and the elements that authors and researchers agreed should be included were selected for this study. Data were collected from a random sample of 524 occupational education instructors and the universe of 128 occupational education administrators (directors of occupational education and deans of instruction) employed in the North Carolina Community College System as full-time employees.
