The study was conducted on the Impact of Blended Learning Strategy in Training Students’ Teachers in National Teachers’ Institutes Centres Adamawa State, Nigeria. The study adopted quasi-experimental design using pre-test, post-test for both groups. The population is 5845 in NTI centres in the state, sample of the study comprised of two intact classes from NTI centres in Mubi and Michika centres with the sample of 121 it comprises male and female students. The experimental group was taught using blended learning strategy, while the control group was taught using conventional method. Performance Test for Students’ Teachers (PTFST), was constructed by the researchers as the instrument for data collection. A reliability coefficient of 0.76 was obtained. Data obtained were analysed using mean and standard deviation for answering the two research questions, related t-test and independent t-test were used for testing null hypotheses 1 and 2. The mean scores for post-test is far better than the mean scores obtained from pre-test. Also, mean scores for experimental group is higher than the mean scores for control group. All null hypotheses were rejected the p-<0.05, therefore, the students taught using blended learning strategy performed better than their counterparts with conventional method. The researchers suggested that blended learning strategy should employ into school curriculum, the curriculum planner should adopt blended learning strategy and consider it during their planning, likewise, book publishers, subjects’ teachers, stakeholders and school managements among others due to the results obtained in the study.
