In-service teacher training is a crucial component of faculty development at the tertiary level. More often than not, in-service teacher-training aims to update teachers on current trends in second language teaching or innovative techniques, strategies and approaches in second language education. This paper describes some short-term in-service teacher training programs in the Philippines which focus on both the development of pedagogical skills and enhancement of proficiency in English. It describes recent and on-going initiatives of the national government and private organizations that show how they have responded to calls for more innovation in second language teaching, and how they are addressing the perceived worsening decline of the English proficiency of Filipino college students, via short-term in-service teacher training. The paper likewise discusses some concerns and problems in designing and implementing training programs.
