Opeyemi Odejimi, Mandu Stephen Ekpenyong


There is no doubt that Further Education (FE) lecturers are one of the most influential individuals in the life of a young adult. Nevertheless, it is usually reported that they find their jobs stressful and irritating. Furthermore, reports have indicated most graduates do not find teaching in FE sectors as an exciting and interesting environment to begin their career. Thus, this sector is not viewed as one where job satisfaction and opportunities for career developments is derived. This paper provides a glimpse into some reported factors that influences FE lecturers’ career satisfaction, aspirations and development. In particular, personal, organisational, external and political influences that impacts on FE lecturers are examined and a call for further research within this sector is strongly recommended. Keywords: Further education lecturers; Career satisfaction; Career aspiration; career development; motivating factors; impeding factors.
