We examined how perceived organizational support and collective efficacy affect the job satisfaction of primary school teachers in China, and explored whether collective efficacy mediates the relationship between perceived organizational support and job satisfaction. We gathered data from 245 teachers using the Job Diagnostic Survey, the Organizational Support Measurement Scale, and the Collective Teacher Efficacy Scale. Our results confirmed there were positive correlations between job satisfaction and perceived organizational support, and between job satisfaction and teachers’ collective efficacy, supporting our initial hypotheses. Notably, perceived organizational support directly influenced teachers’ job satisfaction and also indirectly influenced their job satisfaction through collective efficacy, highlighting the potential for future research to explore strategies that enhance both organizational support and collective efficacy, ultimately ensuring teachers find satisfaction in their job.
