Abstract:The University of Twente and Consent are cooperating in a four-year study. The goal of this cooperation is a healthy and positive school climate. This study examines to see if there is a relationship between the basic psychological needs of the self-determination theory, relatedness, autonomy and competence and some work aspects like job satisfaction, satisfaction with the working conditions and workload. Beside these work aspects, the relationship between the basic needs and some psychological aspect, like personal growth and resilience, are examined. 254 teachers of Consent participated, by filling in questions and questionnaires about the basic needs, job satisfaction, workload, personal growth and resilience. Different linear regressions show that there are significant relationships between fulfillment of the basic needs and job satisfaction, satisfaction with the working conditions, workload, personal growth and resilience. Autonomy has the strongest relationship with all work aspects and resilience. Competence has the strongest relationship with personal growth. This study questions if all basic psychological needs have to be fulfilled in all situations. Supporting autonomy and competence in teachers possibly gives clues for a healthy and positive school climate.
