dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between Human Resource Planning and the quality of education in Institutions of higher learning in Uganda, the case of Management Training and Advisory Centre (MTAC). The objectives of the study were, to determine the effect of job description; effect of person specification; effect of job analysis and effect of job evaluation on, the quality of education in Institutions of higher learning in Uganda. Guided by the Open Systems Theory, the study adopted a cross sectional survey design on a random sample of 93 respondents. Data was collected using questionnaire, interview and document review and analyzed using chi-square technique at α = .05. The study found that job description [χ2 (8, N = 89) = 75.252, p = .000]; person specification [χ2 (8, N = 89) = 103.472, p = .000]; job analysis [χ2 (8, N = 89) = 102.429, p = .000]; and job evaluation [χ2 (8, N = 89) = 58.325, p = .000] have a significant influence on the quality of education in Institutions of Higher Learning in Uganda. They each respectively account for 67.6%%, 73.3%, 73.1% and 62.9% of the variance in quality of education at MTAC. The study concluded that Human Resource Planning has a significant effect on the quality of education in Institutions of higher learning in Uganda. The study recommends that the government through National Council for Higher Education (NCHE) puts emphasis on the establishment of human resource units in Institutions of higher learning and designs clear standards of job descriptions, that should spell out clearly the purpose, duties and work relationships to be carried out by each office; and that there should be regular analysis of jobs in each human resource unit of Institutions of higher learning in Uganda. Further, the study recommends that Institutions of higher learning in Uganda should rank jobs, classify jobs and rate jobs so that jobs at the same level and rank, have the same tags and are performed by people of similar level of qualification. Finally, the researcher recommends that human resource planning in Institutions of higher learning in Uganda be evaluated to determine the missing links to be corrected as a way of improving quality of education in Institutions of higher learning. Based on the fact that all elements of human resource planning have a significant effect on quality of education, the study concluded that Human Resource Planning has a significant effect on the quality of education in Institutions of higher learning in Uganda.en_US
