Abstract

Journal of Sports Science and Physical Education 5(1): 77-94, 2016 - This study aimed to examine the effectiveness of the Bachelor of Education (Honours) programmes offered by the Faculty of Sports Science and Coaching in producing quality graduates and their employability in the profession. Samples for this study comprised of 49 graduates from the B Ed (Sports Science), 25 graduates from B Ed (Coaching Science) and nine B Ed (Physical Education) who have graduated from 2010 to 2014 as well as their respective employers and peers were selected as respondents. Six to ten samples from each programme together with their employers were interviewed further using guided questionnaire. Data was analysed descriptively as well as correlation and regression methods. The findings showed that the graduates mastered very high levels of the knowledge and skills of the courses related to their respective programmes. They also achieved excellent levels of knowledge and skills in the implementation of their respective programmes during and after their completion of studies. The graduates received very high scores from their employers and peers in terms of their attributes and employability. Overall, analyses on the effectiveness of the faculty‟s education programmes showed a positive and significant correlation between the mastery (input) and the implementation (process) of the programmes. However, a moderately positive but not significant correlation was found between the mastery (input) of the courses and the graduates (product). Similar results were found between the implementation of the programmes (process) and the graduates except for the BEd.(Sports Science) which showed a moderate positive and significant correlation. Only 23% predicted mastery of the course (input) and the implementation of the programme influenced the product (graduates) towards the effective implementation of the BEd (Sports Science), compared to 20% for BEd (Coaching Science) and 98% for BEd (Physical Education). This study concluded that Bachelor of Education (Honours) programmes offered by the Faculty of Sports Science and Coaching are capable of producing quality and employable graduates. The faculty has developed its strategic plan in improving the employability of the graduates by streamlining the offering of the BEd (Coaching Science) programme, reinforce the undergraduates soft skills attributes, intensify the activities of the Kinesiology Centre of Excellence and advocate entrepreneurship education in order to produce graduates who are innovative and capable in the education profession.
