Building a four-factor hierarchical structure for explaining vice-principals’ career aspiration

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

A perceived shortfall in the number and quality of people applying for school principal positions internationally has driven research into the factors which influence interest in the position. Much of this interest has focused on the aspirations of vice-principals. The factors proposed by various authors can be categorised into four groups – role proliferation, school factors, demographic factors and motivational factors of aspirants. Most studies have focused on the link between principal shortages between one of another of theses factors only rather than taking all of them into account. Therefore, our study attempted to build a four-factor hierarchical model incorporating the four groups of factors together to explain the career aspiration of vice-principals (VPs).
