Abstract

The study generally attempts to investigate TESL trainees’ perceptions on their level of readiness towards teaching English for Science and Technology subject in school. It attempts to identify the level of readiness in the areas of knowledge in the EST subject, teaching skills as well as interest in teaching the subject as perceived by the TESL trainees. Questionnaires were distributed to 40 Fourth Year TESL trainees. The data collected were analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) software. The findings show very positive pattern which indicated that TESL trainees have positive perception towards their readiness in teaching EST subject. Also, this study proves that TESL trainees have a high level of readiness in the area of knowledge in the EST subject, teaching skills and interest in teaching the subject in school. This study hopes to provide TESL trainees with the information they need for self reflection and to equip them with skills and information for their own EST classes when they become teachers later on. At the same time, it is hoped that the study could assist curriculum planners to design more comprehensive and cohesive curriculum in the future in order to prepare TESL trainees better in the field pertaining to science and technology.
