The aim of this research is twofold: 1) it aims to examine the underlying process through which middle managers’ transformational leadership influence teachers’ teaching commitment by focusing on collective efficacy; and 2) it attempts to explore the moderating role of self-efficacy on the relationship between transformational leadership and teachers’ teaching commitment. Therefore, the research was conducted on1650 teachers randomly selected from 165 secondary public schools in the Northern Region of West Malaysia. Data was collected through survey questionnaires. The research findings have revealed that self-efficacy can be used as a moderator variable to elevate teachers’ collective efficacy with the presence of school’s transformational leadership practices. However, results also showed that teacher collective efficacy acts as a full mediator in the relationship between the dimension of involvement in decision making with the teachers’ commitment in teaching and learning.
