The research sample consists of 172 students studying in the School of Physical Education.
Serin said that “The research population consists of students of the Department of Physical Education at the TRNC universities, and the sample of the research consists of 172 students studying at the relevant departments of two different universities, one state and one private university” and added that in the study, the scale of two different researchers, “Attitude Scale of Teachers’ Teaching Profession” and “Self-Efficacy Perception Scale of the Candidate Teacher” were used as data collection tools. Serin also stated that the personal information form developed by the researcher was used to determine the independent variables (university and gender).
Serin finally stated that in the research, it was concluded that the university variable did not change the attitudes of the male variable while there was a significant difference in favor of male students in terms of gender variable, where the attitudes of teacher candidates towards Physical Education Teaching are low.
