Relationship between Turnover Rate and Job Satisfaction of Foreign Language Teachers in Macau

  •  Luis Miguel Dos Santos    


Teachers’ satisfaction and turnover rate are directly connected. Using the Model of Retention, Turnover and Attrition by Gardner (2010), this work analyzed about four Japanese language teachers at extension school and educational learning center in Macau. The data concluded the participants felt unsatisfied because of unrelated assignments, limitation of career development, and anxiety and unsteady of employment. The results showed that respondents had negative feelings towards their job responsibilities and employers. Accordingly, teachers usually face long-term stress and burnout because of multiple responsibilities. Therefore, the unsupportive school context could create a negative effect on job satisfaction and retention of teachers. The theoretical model suggests that negative job attributes have a direct relationship with teacher status and job satisfaction.
