Assessment of Skills Utilization towards Farming by Secondary School Agriculture Graduates in Lilongwe
Abstract: This study aimed to assess the utilization of agriculture skills by secondary school graduates and had four objectives. The study employed a mixed - methods approach to collect both qualitative and quantitative data, which were analyzed using thematic analysis and descriptive statistics respectively. The study found that although students had positive attitudes towards agriculture, many did not gain practical skills, impacting their ability to utilize the knowledge and skills they acquired. The study recommends strengthening teaching of agriculture at secondary schools by shifting towards critical thinking and practical application, and motivating students.
