Résumé: This study examines the longitudinal links between teachers’ perception of trust in administration and their attitudinal outcomes in the workplace through the mediating role of their collective efficacy (CE). The study was conducted among 637 participants. The structural equation analysis results reveal that: 1) teachers’ perception of trust in administration (T1) predicts their CE (T2); 2) teachers’ CE (T1) predicts their affective organizational commitment (T2) and their job satisfaction (T2); 3) CE (T2) plays a mediating role between teachers’ perception of trust (T1) and their attitudinal outcomes (commitment and satisfaction) in the workplace (T2). The study’s findings contribute to a better understanding of the prominent role of CE from a longitudinal perspective.
