Teacher burnout: Personal and school environment correlates of burnout, wellbeing and turnover intent in a sample of Australian teachers

posted on 2020-09-30, 07:30 authored by SUJATTA NATALIA MARIA RAJENDRAN
This study investigated teacher burnout, wellbeing and turnover intention in a sample of 1,255 primary and secondary teachers working across the states of New South Wales and Victoria. In particular, the study examined how both job and personal demands and resources predicted burnout and how burnout predicted depression and turnover intent. Findings revealed that having high demands (both job and personal) increased burnout which in turn diminished wellbeing and increased turnover intention. Further, while organisation-based self-esteem was found to be protective against burnout, having more job resources actually heightened burnout.
