Survey shows that 86% of teachers feel they do something worthwhile
A new survey showed that 51% of all teachers are “extremely” and “very satisfied” at work.
The survey, published on Wednesday 29 November, was conducted among around 2,000 primary and secondary school teachers and substitute teachers, and carried out by TNS Ilres, a private polling firm. Other civil servants showed only a 43% satisfaction rate.
57% of teachers are happy with the work, and 65% with their salaries. Less than half (48%) are satisfied with their working conditions and their career perspectives (36%).
However, 69% are always or very often proud of their work.
The following factors play a big motivation factor for teachers: autonomy (87%), the content of their work (86%), the atmosphere in group work (72%), the work environment (68%).
86% feel they do something worthwhile, and 81% feel they are well treated at work.
However, many complained about being stressed a lot (32%), and a minority felt stressed all the time (10%).
