The study determined emotional intelligence and locus of control as predictors of teachers’ instructional leadership models in public secondary schools in Enugu State, Nigeria. Two research questions were answered while two null hypotheses were tested at p ≤ 0.05 level of probability. The design was a correlation design. The population of the study is 4,516 teachers consisting of 1,407 males and 3,109 females in the public junior secondary schools in Enugu State. The sample for the study was 903. Proportionate stratified random sampling technique was used for the study. Three instruments: Teachers’ Instructional Leadership Rating Scale (TILRS), Teachers’ Emotional Intelligence Rating Scale (TEIRS) and Teachers’ Locus of Control Rating Scale (TLCRS) were developed and used for the study. The TILRS, TEIRS and TLCRS were face validated by three specialists in the field of study. Cronbach Alpha method was used to determine the internal consistency reliability of the items which yielded a reliability estimate of 0.81, 0.83 and 0.79 respectively. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer research question one, whereas Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient (Pearson r) was used to answer the research questions two. Linear and multiple regressions analysis and t-test statistic were used to test the hypotheses at 0.05 level of probability. Results indicated that emotional intelligence significantly predicted teachers’ instructional leadership models and Locus of control significantly predicted teachers’ instructional leadership models. It was recommended that school administrators should organize workshops or seminars for teachers on the relationship among emotional intelligence, locus of control and teachers’ instructional leadership models.
