Abstract:

This study aims to assess the relationship between the supportive work environment (SWE), informal learning (IFL), and the innovative work behaviour (IWB) of general school teachers. The stratified sampling method is used to select 471 teachers from general public schools in Vietnam. Data are analysed using the Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) technique with AMOS 22. As per findings, a supportive work environment is critical to predicting teacher’ innovative work behaviour. Informal learning is a partially mediator in the relationship between the supportive work environment and innovative work behaviour. New findings are found regarding the impact of teachers’ informal learning on innovative teaching behaviour. Therefore, some recommendations for educational administrators are also included in the study to encourage innovative teaching behaviour through informal learning promotion.
