Job satisfaction is a much disputed issue in the field of education, because it affects the system in many ways and may affect productivity and achievements of an organization. This descriptive study is aimed to find out the level of teacher educators’ job satisfaction in relation to their personal demographics such as gender, age, years of experience, level of education, marital status and location.
The study was conducted by using convenient sampling with the participation of 132 teacher educators of four neighbouring provinces (Balkh, Jawzjan, Samangan and Sarepul) in the north zone of Afghanistan. The data of the study were collected via five-point Likert scale questionnaire including six aspects of job satisfaction (job itself, supervision, promotion, colleagues, salary and work condition).
The data analysis was based on the frequency and percentages of the responses and the following results are reported:
Most of the teacher educators were satisfied with the job itself and with relation to colleagues. The least satisfying aspects among them were salary and work condition. The study also revealed the fact that apart from location there were no significant relations between job satisfaction aspects and other selected demographics of this study. Location had a significant relation with two aspects of job satisfaction namely supervision and work condition. Finally, according to the findings of the present study some recommendations are added.
