Purpose: In modern times, it's generally accepted that students experience professional concern in finding job after graduating from the university. The purpose of this study is to analyze anxiety levels of physical education and sport teachers' in terms of different variables such as sex, class level, age, the sports type and level of family income. Method: 93 students (32 female and 61 male) took part in the study. As the data collection tool, "The Professional concern scale for teacher candidates", developed by Cabi and Yalcinalp (2013) and composed of eight sub-dimensions was used. For the data analysis; descriptive statistics, the Mann-Whitney U test, and Kruskal-Wallis test were applied. Findings: At the results of analysis, there was statistically significant difference (p<0,05) between two groups at the sub-dimension, coherence-centric, of the Professional concern scale for teacher candidates according to the sex variable while a statistically significant difference was not found in terms of sex at others sub-dimensions of the scale. There was no statistically significant difference in terms of the variables such as the class level, the sports type and level of family income at any sub-dimensions of the scale. Result: In this study, the Professional concern levels of physical education and sport teachers' in terms of different variables such as sex, class level, age, the sports conducted and level of family income were analyzed. While there was a statistically significant difference at the sub-dimension, coherence-centric, it was seen that there was no statistically significant difference at others sub-dimensions in term of any variables. That there wasn't much difference at concern level of the students may result from the education levels of students, closed to each other. (C) 2015 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
