ABSTRACT

This study aimed at exploring the relationship between Occupational Self-Efficacy and psychological well-being among teachers in the city of Mysore, India. There are two major objectives of the study: to study the relationship between occupational self-efficacy and psychological well-being; and to investigate the effect of the variable of gender on occupational self-efficacy and psychological well-being. 600 teachers, from both Government and Private Schools, have been drowned by random sampling. A Spearman’s Correlation Coefficient and Mann Whitney’s U test have been applied to analyze hypotheses using SPSS version 20. The results of Spearman’s Correlation Coefficient indicated a positive and significant correlation between occupational self-efficacy and psychological well-being. The findings highlighted that, in the educational field, organizations should concentrate on teachers as a key element of the educated society; hence, they should concentrate on the psychological aspects of teachers’ personality. The study has also found that high self-efficacy and high psychological well-being are positively related; which in turn, could be considered in workplace in order to progress the productivity of educational outcomes. Finally, there was no significant effect of gender on both occupational self-efficacy and psychological well-being.
