Quality of education delivery: trainers' perspectives in universities of Calabar and Uyo, Nigeria.

Archibong, Ijeoma A.; Bassey, S. U.; Oshiomu, Augustine O.

Abstract:
This study in which survey research design was adopted sought lecturers’ perspectives on adequacy of graduate preparation for employment. The study sample comprised 192 lecturers in 6 sampled faculties in universities of Calabar and Uyo. One (1) research question was evolved to guide the study. A 20-item questionnaire with alpha coefficient of 0.84, which sought information on 4 indices of quality of programmes for graduate preparation for employment, was utilized for data collection. Analysis of the data using simple percentages revealed among others that 53.7% of the respondents strongly agreed that the curricula of study operated in their departments were adequate to prepare graduates for employment, while 63.5% of them disagreed that ICT facilities were available for staff/students. Recommendations made included periodic review of the curriculum with a view of upgrading it to reflect the realities in the world of work and that academic departments should keep good feedback records of ex-students in order to keep abreast with changing needs of the labour market.
