Abstract


The study’s purpose was to describe the competence in well-being at work of social and health care educators and the factors influencing it. Cross-sectional study. Data were collected using a questionnaire from social and health care educators (n=243) working at ten randomly selected educational organizations. K-means clustering was used to identify three distinct educator profiles. Educators belonging to profiles 1 and 2 exhibited low competence in managing work well-being. All profiles exhibited intermediate competence in promoting work well-being. Competence in appreciating the work of educators was either intermediate or high in all three profiles. Managers working in educational organizations need to ensure and support educators’ well-being.
