dc.description.abstractThis research reflects on job satisfaction among teachers in Ireland today. A contemporary study which explores the job satisfaction of teachers and its predictors. Self-efficacy, motivation, perceived stress and years of service were hypothesised as predictors of the criterion, job satisfaction. The study aimed to see the correlation of the aforementioned predictors to job satisfaction in Irish based primary and post-primary teachers. Recent changes in pay scales, proposed curriculum reform and imposed professional obligations and requirements, was the rationale that led to the question of whether there are significant differences within groups of teachers and across teachers paid on different pay scales. An online cross-sectional, correlational study was used to collect data, using non-probability and snowball sampling. Results showed significant levels of perceived stress experienced by teachers, with post-primary school teachers reported as having significantly more stress. Perceived stress, amotivation and intrinsic motivation were significant predictors of job satisfaction. Author keywords: Job satisfaction, predictors, teachers, educationen
