Abstract

Generally, the study intended to assess the use of non- financial motivation as a strategy to improve teacher performance. The study was carried out in Ilala municipality in Dar es Salaam region. The objectives of the study were: to examine the availability of non financial motivation; to examine the perceptions of teachers on the effectiveness of non financial motivation; to examine the contribution of non financial motivation on performance of teachers; and to suggest ways of improving the provision of non-financial motivation to teachers in community secondary school. A case study employed a descriptive mixed research design, using a sample of 80 teachers, which included eight heads of schools and 72 teachers from eight selected community secondary schools in Ilala municipality who were selected using two sampling techniques namely purposive and simple random sampling. Data collection instruments used were questionnaire, interview and documentary analysis. Qualitative and quantitative techniques were used for data analysis; and data were presented in tables and pie charts by simple descriptive statistics in frequencies; whereas percentages were used to present the findings. This study recommends that there is direct relationship between provision of non-financial motivation and performance of teachers. The study recommends that local government as the teacher employer should ensure, create and provide good accommodation, in service training, and promotion of teachers in appropriate time; develop a fair reward system, and communication style; and give recognition and respect in order to improve teachers’ performance.
