Abstract: Transfer of training is an important indicator of the effect of school-based training. Through the SEM analysis of a training transfer model using a sample of 817 teachers who have participated in school-based training, we found several results. The influence of training transfer design on training transfer result is not direct but through the chain mediating role of "learning outcome→transfer motivation". Teachers' self-efficacy positively moderated the effect of learning outcome on transfer motivation while teachers' stress from heavy workload negatively moderated it. In conclusion, the authors suggest it's necessary to put emphasis on transfer motivation so as to facilitate transformative learning, and the increase of teachers' self-efficacy and the decrease of teachers stress from heavy workload is an entry point to enhance teachers' transfer motivation. Moreover, "transfer motivation" needs to be included as a dimension of the assessment of school-based training.

Key words: school-based training, transfer of training, transfer motivation, transformative learning
