Abstract: This study examined the effect of in-service teachers‘ morale training on their self-efficacy and motivation to teach at secondary school level in Lahore. The nature of study was mix method research. The mixed method design employed an embedded approach with an experimental design. The single subject (A-B-A) design was used to lead the study and embedded research design applied as supportive role. The population of the present study was comprised of all female teachers working in a private secondary school level in Lahore. The researcher selected all thirty teachers of a private secondary school as sample through convenience sampling technique and conducted sixteen weeks training on morale under following themes: Professional commitment, learning environment, motivation, self-esteem, school climate, job satisfaction, professional attitude, professional identity, belongingness and enthusiasm. Training modules were validated by Dr. Zulifqar Ali, Principal Govt. School & Master Trainer of Quaid-e Azam Academy for Educational Development (QAED), Sharqpur. The researcher used two instruments for quantitative data collection; Instrument A teachers‘ self-efficacy scale comprised of twenty-six items developed by Albert Bandura (2006) was adapted, Instrument B teachers‘ motivation scale comprised of twenty-eight items developed by Feyyat Gokce (2010) was adopted. The data was analyzed by using statistical package of social sciences (SPSS) version 22. Non- Parametric statistics Kolmogorov-Smirnov and Shapiro-Wilk were applied to check the normal distribution of data. Mean score, Standard Deviation and Paired sample t-test were used to check the significance effect. One-way ANOVA and Independent sample t test were used to find difference between demographic variables. Descriptive statistic applied to measure the change in Mean, Standard Deviation and Rank item wise of both scales (teachers‘ motivation scale & teachers‘ self-efficacy scale) in pretest and ii posttest. For qualitative data collection focus group interview was conducted after intervention. The results were presented and discussed under four emerging themes namely; self-efficacy, motivation, peer support and ethics. Semi-structured questions were developed to collect the qualitative data. The researcher also conducted face-to face interview to take the review of training from the participants. The data was collected under two themes; perception of teachers about professional development and teachers experience about training. The steps in qualitative analysis of focus group interview and face-to-face interview were comprised: (a) preliminary exploration of the data by reading through the transcripts and writing memos; (b) coding the data by segmenting and labeling the text; (c) using codes to develop themes by aggregating similar codes together; (d) connecting and interrelating themes; and (e) constructing a narrative. The results concluded that teachers‘ morale training has a significant effect on their self-efficacy and motivation to teach at secondary school level and the results supported by qualitative data analysis as well. Teachers review about training was excellent. It is expected that this research study may be significant for private school teachers in enhancing their self-efficacy and motivation so that they perform their duty effectively. The results of the study provide guidelines for the management of public and private schools, while designing training programs for their staff. It is expected that the results may help policy makers and curriculum designers while designing training curriculum. Keywords: Morale, Self-efficacy, Motivation.
