Abstract

This study examined the relationship between knowledge-mediation intrapreneurial ventures and secondary school teachers’ standards of living (SOL) in Central Uganda. In many African countries, the economic welfare of teachers is poor; and teachers try all sorts of businesses in view of improving on their plight. What is not clear, however, is whether such ventures as part-timing and vending learning materials are capable of making a substantial contribution to teachers’ SOL. The study employed a descriptive survey design over a sample of 200 teachers; and used both a questionnaire and an interview guide. Data was analysed using descriptive statistics, regression and correlation analysis. It was discovered that while some knowledge-mediation ventures such as parttiming make a positive contribution to teachers’ SOL; others such as coaching do not. The study concluded that, with due diligence and administrative cooperation, intrapreneurial ventures are capable of improving on teachers’ economic welfare, for more committed service
