This study investigated technical educators’ job satisfaction as correlate of job performance in tertiary institutions in Edo and Delta States. One research question guided this study while two hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. Correlational survey method was adopted in the study. The entire population of 283 technical educators involved in the study was also used as sample size for the study. Questionnaire titled “Technical Educators’ Job Satisfaction and Job Performance Questionnaire” (TEJSJPQ) was the instrument used for data collection and it was validated by three experts. The reliability of the instrument was established using Cronbach alpha and it yielded an overall coefficient of 0.92. The data collected for the study were analyzed using Pearson Product Moment Correlation (r) method to answer the research question. The formulated null hypotheses were tested using Pearson Product Moment Correlation (r). The findings of this study revealed that there is a relationship between technical educators’ job satisfaction and job performance. In addition, a significant relationship exists between technical educators’ job satisfaction and job performance. Based on these findings, it was recommended, among others, that policy makers should formulate policies that will enhance job performance of technical educators, and that regulatory agencies such as NUC, NBTE and NCCE should always be on the alert to address any identified challenges confronting the needs of technical educators so as to forestall the problems that may arise from lack of job satisfaction.
