Development, Commitment at Work, Teachers


The problem of this research is teachers’ disengagement from work. This disengagement manifests itself later in work, absenteeism, frequent abandonments of classrooms, laxity at work, late reporting for duty, fraudulent reassignments. The main research question is: does teacher fulfilment promote teacher engagement in the workplace? The overall aim of this research is to show that teacher self-development promotes teacher engagement in the workplace. Theories of work motivation have helped us understand the process of work engagement, the process and the content of motivation. Our general hypothesis is that the development of the teachers develops his commitment to work. Teachers must commit to working, but this with the public authorities’ help should promote their career fulfilment. The operationalisation of the independent variable made it possible to construct three research hypotheses. Data collection was carried out in the Yaounde 6 district inspectorate, using a questionnaire in the form of a measurement scale with a final sample of 81 participants. We conducted a correlation and regression analysis. The three research hypotheses were 100% valued, validating our general hypothesis.
