  The study investigated human resource management practices for quality assurance in adult education programmes in South-East, Nigeria. The study was guided by two specific purposes, two research questions and two corresponding null hypothesis. A descriptive survey design was adopted for the study while the population of the study consisted 4.140 respondents comprising five directors, 95 unit coordinators and 4.040 facilitators of adult education programmes in the five South-East states of Nigeria. The sample size for the study was 755 respondents in selecting the sample composition, the entire population of five directors and 95 unit coordinators were used due to their manageable size while multi-stage sampling techniques were adopted to select 655 facilitators from the total population of 4.040. The instrument for data collection was researcher’s 18-item structured questionnaire titled “Human Resource Management Practices for Quality Assurance Questionnaire” (HRMPQAQ). The instrument was facevalidated by three experts and its reliability coefficient ascertained using Cronbach’s alpha method. The research questions were answered using mean and standard deviation while the hypothesis were tested at 0.05 level of significance using Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). The data analyses revealed among others that: personnel recruitment and selection practices for quality assurance in adult education programmes include: advertising widely job vacancies in various media to attract sufficient suitable applicants; subjecting successful candidates to oral and written interviews to ascertain their competencies and short-listing candidates for various vacant positions objectively without fear or favour. The study also revealed that team teaching; continuous training through workshops; seminars; refresher courses; job rotation exercises among others were the personnel training and development practices for quality assurance in adult education programmes. It also revealed that, there were significant differences in mean ratings of the directors, unit coordinators and adult education facilitators as regards the two null hypothesis that guided the study. Based on the findings of the study, some recommendations were made amongst which were that the governments, NGOs and other stakeholders in the field of education should promote transparency, meritocracy and impartiality in the employment of adult education personnel, so as to promote quality assurance in adult education programmes.
