Abstract

This study explored the complexity of the early career English teachers from teacher identity perspective involving a feature (teacher attrition) in influencing their decision making. The aim of this study is to investigate the early career teachers in influencing their career decision making in terms of the factors of teachers’ attrition. The researchers formulated two research problems: (1) To what extent the factors of teachers attrition influence teachers’ career decision making? and (2) What factors will help the teachers to complete their determination becoming a teacher or changing their job? This study employed a qualitative approach. The participants of this study were seven early career English teachers. In order to collect the data, the researchers conducted an open-ended questionnaire. The results of this study indicated that there is no significant influence of six teacher attrition factors to the early career teacher decision making. Most of the participants assumed that actually they had face those factor of teacher attrition in teaching learning process, but they still had high determination in being a teacher.
