In a presentation  conducted by Mr. Nuwabimpa Milton Rwiita during the Nkumba International research conferencere,a significant relationship between the quality of teaching and the employability of university graduates has been uncovered.


Mr. Rwiita defines employability not only as the ability of graduates to secure a job but also to sustain it over time.


“This finding is particularly relevant to Uganda’s Vision 2040, which aims to tackle the challenge of underemployment and unemployment by enhancing the skills of the labor force.”


“The research underscores the crucial role of universities in ensuring that graduates are equipped with the necessary skills to thrive in the job market. Quality education, the study suggests, hinges on several factors including the caliber of teachers, the effectiveness of instruction, and the learning environment provided to students.” he says.


He also explains that the empirical evidence presented in the study supports both the human capital theory, which emphasizes the role of education and training in enhancing productivity, and the signaling theory, which posits that education serves as a signal of an individual’s abilities to potential employers.


Based on these findings, Mr. Rwiita proposes several recommendations to improve the employability of university graduates.

Firstly, ensuring the presence of competent and dedicated teaching staff is paramount. Additionally, there is a need for a shift towards skill-based teaching methods to better prepare students for the demands of the job market.


Moreover, the study advocates for the implementation of formal mentorship programs for students to provide them with guidance and support as they transition into the workforce.


“By addressing these recommendations, universities can play a pivotal role in equipping students with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in the workforce, thereby contributing to the realization of Uganda’s development goals.” he explains
