Abstract

The purpose of the study was to determine the levels of job satisfaction among staff of the College of Technology Education, Kumasi (COLTEK) of the University of Education, Winneba.  Descriptive research design was used for the study and questionnaire was used for data collection. The population consisted of 420 staff (teaching and non-teaching) of COLTEK as at 2018, made up of 131 senior members, 120 senior staff and 169 junior staff. Stratified random sampling was used to select 201 staff comprising 65 senior members, 55 senior staff and 81 junior staff for the study. The Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) was used. Cross tabulation was used to compare satisfaction levels amongst groups of workers in the University. The major findings of the study were that staff of COLTEK was satisfied more intrinsically than extrinsically. The overall level of job satisfaction (intrinsic and extrinsic) among COLTEK staff was 69%. Majority of staff were males but females were more satisfied than their male counterparts. It was recommended that the College should generate more funds and complement the salary being paid by Government in the form of annual bonuses.
