This thesis employed the theory of organisational equilibrium to examine academic staff turnover and retention in Ghanaian technical universities. The findings highlight three converging domains of factors underpinning academic staff turnover: personal factors, organisation-wide factors and external factors. The findings have significant implications for Ghana’s education policies, and for the human resource policies of technical universities, especially if Ghana’s goal is to improve the development of its human capital and build its vocational education sector.
