Australian Association for Research in Education (NJ1), Paper presented at the Joint Australian Association for Research in Education and Asia-Pacific Educational Research Association Conference (AARE-APERA 2012) World Education Research Association (WERA) Focal Meeting (Sydney, New South Wales, Dec 2-6, 2012)
Staff in Special Schools are seldom the focus of research, yet work with a student group some might consider demanding and stressful. Staff who work in Catholic special Schools are under-represented in the academic literature. The motivation and efficacy of Special School staff were studies in 7 Catholic Special Schools. These staff were observed to have high efficacy and high occupational commitment. Occupational commitment was highly predicted by affective domain variables and staff collective efficacy was predicted the scale variable Professional Vitality among staff and negatively associated with the scale variable Negative Staff Affect. (Contains 5 figures, 7 tables and 7 footnotes.)
