image of TALIS 2013 Results

How can countries prepare teachers to face the diverse challenges in today’s schools?  The OECD Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) helps answer this question by asking teachers and school leaders about their working conditions and the learning environments at their schools. TALIS aims to provide valid, timely and comparable information to help countries review and define policies for developing a high-quality teaching profession. It is an opportunity for teachers and school leaders to provide input into educational policy analysis and development in key areas.  This report presents the results of the second cycle of the TALIS survey conducted in 2013.

Teacher Self-Efficacy and Job Satisfaction: Why They Matter

This chapter focuses on teachers’ feelings of self-efficacy and job satisfaction. Self-efficacy refers to the level of confidence teachers have in their abilities, while job satisfaction is the sense of fulfilment and gratification that teachers get from working. The chapter looks at some of the themes previously examined in this report (professional development, appraisal and feedback, school leadership, teacher characteristics) and investigates whether they influence teachers’ feelings of self-efficacy and job satisfaction. The discussion then considers teacher and school characteristics that might serve to lessen the effects of potentially challenging classroom circumstances for teachers. It concludes with recommendations for policy makers, school leaders and teachers.
