Abstract

The purpose of this study is designed to investigate the relationship between on the job training and job satisfaction, using a small sample of teachers from an English training school in China through video interviews. The results of this study suggests that, to a large extent, the teachers hold the view that on the job training can improve their job satisfaction in teaching as their working capabilities, promotion chances and confidence can be enhanced. However, some inappropriate training programs may have the opposite effect and reduce the teachers’ motivation and job satisfaction. Moreover, there are other factors not related to training which contribute to the teachers’ job satisfaction such as their own motivation and a friendly working environment. This study is one of the few studies to explore the relationship between on the job training and job satisfaction in the teaching sector in China, although similar research has been conducted to examine this topic in other fields such as retail and the catering/service industry, therefore, this study strives to address this research gap.
