As studies suggest, Job satisfaction acts as a vital role in teachers’ performance. This particular study aims to identify the level of job satisfaction of teachers of Non formal Primary Education Program conducted by various NGOs in Dhaka City. Identifying the variations in their level of job satisfaction in terms of their characteristic and the various factors that affect their job satisfaction and measuring the relationship between their job satisfaction and those identified factors were the main concerns of the study. A mixed method approach has been adopted and a total of 55 respondents from five different NGOs of Dhaka city took part in the study. The respondents were selected randomly by visiting 12 schools and 1 training session. Semi- structured questionnaire along with two measurement scales were used to identify the levels and the various factors of job satisfaction. Independent-sample t-test, One-Way ANOVA and Person’s correlation test were operated for the overall purposes at 0.05 level of significance. Some explanations were made to support the findings. Teachers of NFPE were found to be overall satisfied with their job and they possess a high level of job satisfaction. Their job satisfaction is not influenced by their gender, age and academic qualification but is influenced by job duration and implementing organizations. 14 factors were identified that affect mostly NFPE teachers’ job satisfaction where interpersonal relationship was ranked as the most satisfying factor. Salary and benefits were identified as the high ranking of dissatisfaction. There exists high correlation between NFE teachers’ job satisfaction and most of the identified factors. Only salary, benefit, and quality of teaching learning materials do not have any significant relationship with NFPE teachers’ overall job satisfaction. However, some strategic remedies can be made through inclusive initiatives to resolve some of the identified dis-satisfactory facts.
