This study aims to analyse the influence of learning culture (LC) and transformational leadership (TL) on knowledge application (KA) in the school context. Mediation analysis is used to quantify the effects that the LC has on the application of leadership, mediated by TL.
The method involves two samples of subjects – school managers and teaching staff – from 17 educational organisations. This study used the partial least squares method in the SmartPLS.
The results prove an effect of total mediation of TL.
This study highlights the importance of KA in educational organisations and propounds the responsibility of leadership in educational management.
