The purpose of this study is to analyse the need for curriculum development of special education teachers who work at special education centres and schools with resource rooms with regard to different variables and determine their perceptions of self-efficacy. In this study, a general survey model was employed that allows a general opinion about the universe. The population of the study consists of a total of 84 special education teachers who work at special education centres and schools with resource rooms that function under the Primary and Secondary Education Office of the TRNC Ministry of National Education. ‘Needs Analysis Survey’ and ‘Teacher’s Self-Efficacy Scale’ are employed to collect data. The results reveal that teachers urgently need an education curriculum to be developed. Moreover, teachers’ perception of efficacy is at an intermediate level.
Keywords: Curriculum development, needs analysis, self-efficacy perceptions.
