Abstract

The aim of this research was to use the Job Demands-Resources model as a theoretical framework to test a structural model which included job characteristics, burnout, and ill-health for primary school educators in the North West Province. A cross-sectional survey design was used. Stratified random samples ( = 646) were taken of primary school educators in the North West Province. The Maslach Burnout Inventory-General Survey, the Job Characteristics Inventory, and the Health sub-scale of an Organisational Stress Screening Evaluation Tool (ASSET) were administered. Structural equation modelling showed that job demands and a lack of job resources contributed to ill-health through burnout, indicating that burnout mediated between job characteristics and ill-health.
