 CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION

 1.1       Background of the study

The goals of education in Nigeria place emphasis on fostering and inculcating cultural and intellectual development in youths. The development and preparation for career prospects constitute the core of education processes and implementation. This in effect provides the country with well-trained men and women capable of forwarding and controlling the complex processes of economic and social development.

The school has the responsibility of giving assistance to the students to understand themselves as unique individuals.  To become aware of their values, abilities, interest, talents, aptitudes, personality, characteristics, strength and weaknesses after which he can make decisions that are appropriate, meaningful and realistic for his future survival (Denga, 2007).

The career demands students to be acquainted with various career prospects abounds in relation to the courses offered in the college. In view of the apparent ignorance of many young people about career prospect and in view of personality and adjustment among school children, career information is very necessary (National Policy on Education, 2008). Among the different courses offered in the college, physical and health education is a discipline were career prospect abounds in the world today. Career associated with commercial sports, entertainment, production and organization of sport contests, administration of amateur sports, professional field i.e. teaching and a lot more are available.

The role of counselors, professionals, mass media and the entire staff in the school system should not be overemphasized in this perspective. Research on the paths through which people come to their vocations tends to emphasize the impact of situational and random factors over which we have little whereof making a decision. The selection of career might best be viewed as a process of socialization by which one’s choice is gradually narrowed as the situation is encountered, feedback received and one’s self-esteem pushed towards an unseen future (Loy et al, 2012).

In Light of the above overview about career socialization, sports is one of the most important agents because it brings people of different dimensions races and ethnic groups together. Many are the children in our society who have visualized themselves as Olympic or professional athletes. For those who are successful among the peers, the dream praises the audience for those who are less successful, the dream fades or places them in a lower position of priority (Nixon and Vendia, 2008). In a broad sense, the opportunities or career in sports among others include, sports writer, sports organizers, sports commentators, recreational directors, as a coach, as a teacher, physiotherapists in hospitals, working in the ministry of youth and sport (Effiong, 2013). In view of this, the economic and social changes in our society today awaken one’s interest to determine career prospects and math course offered. This, therefore, needs career information in order to know the different type of vocations, salaries, wages and fringe benefits such vocations attract.

1.2       Statement of the Problem

The issue of career prospect and awareness in Physical and Health Education among students in Akwa Ibom State College of Education, Afaha Nsit is of interest to the researcher. This is so because there are thousands of those who complete their programme of study in school and Colleges without any good knowledge of what they are going to do; and more so, without preparing adequately for their next step in life.

This problem is not connected with utter ignorance of students on the existing career opportunities in certain disciplines like physical and health education. Each year, more and more people seek initial career opportunities or even alternatives careers, making job-search process and increasingly difficult and challenging one.

It is unfortunate that, lack of counseling causes most people to become frustrated and discouraged in life (Nixon and Vendian, 2008). One could, therefore, be tempted to feel that, career counseling, professionals and mass media have not created much impact in helping students determine career prospects in physical and health education. In view of this to investigate the career prospect and awareness of physical and health education students in the College of Education, Afaha Nsit would not be out of place.
