Teachers' perception of their work motivation : a qualitative study.

During the past few years the changes in the South African education system have come under the spotlight. These changes may have an impact on the working conditions of educators and subsequently influence their motivation. If school managers can identify the factors that influence the motivation of educators in time, they can implement and execute effective motivation strategies to ensure that educators, in the midst of the changes, can still perform their duties in an effective, enthusiastic and motivated manner.

This article reports on a qualitative study to determine the intrinsic and extrinsic factors that influence educator motivation in the Eastern Cape.
