dc.description.abstractIn Kenya teaching is regarded as a profession characterized by high professional preparation, turnover and attrition. It is also an academic discipline as the individuals involved are required to receive in academic subjects. The purpose of this study was to determine the motives for choosing teaching as a career among pre-service Physical Education (PE) teachers in two Kenyan universities. Data were collected through self-administered questionnaires from 85 teacher trainees. The data were analysed through t-test and one-way ANOVA to determine the effects of selected demographic factors (age, gender, year level and parental social economic status: SES) on motives for selecting PE. Findings showed that the teacher trainees chose PE due to various reasons such as fun and enjoyment (95.3%), PE is interesting (94.1 %) and offers diverse opportunities (89.4%) and the motives with the least influence were encouragement to pursue PE by significant others such as friends, parents and secondary school teachers. The motives for choosing teaching PE did not differ significantly across on age, gender, year level and parental SES.lt is concluded that the pre-service teachers are likely to continue teaching PE in the light of their strong convictions that they made a wise career choice. Educational planners and administrators should incorporate the trainee teachers' motives in future marketing and student recruitment campaigns.en_US
