ABSTRACT

This study assessed the self-efficacy for learning and for employment between regular and sandwich students of primary education studies. The study found out whether self-efficacy for learning and for employment depends of students’ programme of study. This study employed descriptive survey research design. The population of the study consists all regular and sandwich students of the University of Ilorin, Ilorin, Nigeria. A simple random sampling method was used to select 100 students across all the departments. A researcher’s designed questionnaire was used to elicit information on students’ self-efficacy for learning and employment. Descriptive statistics of percentage and inferential statistics of t-test were used for data analysis. Findings from the study revealed that the level of self-efficacy for learning and for employment among regular and sandwich students was high on majority; and that there was significant difference between the self-efficacy for learning among regular and sandwich students in favour of regular students. It was therefore recommended that both regular and sandwich students should be given opportunity to practice what they are studying while still in school; sandwich students should be sensitized on the need to have confidence in their learning ability; and that regular students should be orientated on the need to have high level of self-efficacy towards employment.
