Perceptions of Industry in Botswana towards Botho University Student Industrial Attachment (SIA) Program.

Abstract:

One of the Quality Policy statements for Botho University (BU) is

to produce internationally and global employable graduates.

This helps BU to make meaningful contributions to sustainable

development in Botswana through the provision of high quality

education. The study was motivated by the desire to establish

perceptions of Botswana industry as regards BU Student

Industrial Attachment (SIA) Programme introduced in 2011. The

population for the study constituted 601 organizations which

had at one time or another have taken BU students on

attachment, and a convenience sample of 200 was taken in

Gaborone, and 150 questionnaires were fully completed and

returned, representing a 75 % response rate. The major finding

of the study was that industry had a positive perception and a

supportive attitude towards the attachment programme.

However, further research regarding duration of the attachment,

timing and intergrated curriculum development is needed in

order to reinforce the attachment programme.
