Abstract:In this study is examined which individual and environmental variables explain innovative behaviour of teachers. Innovation is in this study the creation, introduction and use of new ideas within a function, a team or an organisation (West & Farr, 1989; Janssen, 2004). Innovative behaviour is the process of idea generation, idea promotion and idea realisation (Janssen, 2004; de Jong & den Hartog, 2005). In this study is examined to what extent selfefficacy and learning goal orientation influence innovative behaviour of teachers. Selfefficacy is the individual belief in the possibility to do a specific task or to show specific behaviour (Bandura, 1977). Learning goal orientation means that people will improve their own competence to complete new and if necessary difficult tasks (Dweck & Leggett, 1988). Also is investigated to what extent the effort of HRM-instruments influence innovative behaviour of teachers. The last few years there is more interest in using HRM-instruments in education. An example is the introduction of integrated personnel policy (integraal personeelsbeleid) (Ministerie OCW, 2007). The use of HRM-instruments is in this study examined on the basis of the theory of Bowen and Ostroff (2004). This study is carried out by means of a questionnaire, 456 respondents working on secondary vocational education and training (MBO-onderwijs), filled out the questionnaire. The results show that both self-efficacy and learning goal orientation are positive significant related to innovative behaviour. Besides the individual effect of self-efficacy and learning goal orientation this study shows a mediator effect of learning goal orientation towards selfefficacy and innovative behaviour. The expected positive relations between the use of HRMinstruments and innovative behaviour is not confirmed in this study. In the conclusion and discussion the limitations and implications are discussed
