Introduction to Motivation
High teacher performance is not just about competencies. It is as much about being motivated to teach school children, excel as a teacher, develop teaching competencies and be part of the school team.
Salary and benefits are motivating factors and are subject to negotiation between government, employer and employee representatives, such as the SLTU. However, there are other tools available for motivating teachers, which can be applied directly on an everyday basis by TSC, school authorities and school leaders to promote high teacher performance in schools.
