This study examines how the experience with mobility and the attitude towards mobility of Dutch secondary school teachers shape their intentions to be mobile.
A secondary analysis was conducted on data collected among 1261 respondents.

The findings reveal that attitudes towards mobility were linked to past experience with mobility and there is a strong relationship between the attitude towards mobility and the intention to be mobile.
The control variables age, experience in teaching, and type of employment seem to have an effect as well.
