The Philippine maritime industry is striving to meet the increasing demand for quality and skilled graduates. Maritime higher education institutions are ensuring that their faculty maintain an environment of positive work values and attitudes to help their students reach their highest potential. This study investigated the work values and attitudes towards the work environment of maritime instructors at one private maritime higher education institution during the transition to face-to-face classes. An adapted questionnaire on a 4-point Likert scale was used. Data were collected through total population sampling. Descriptive and correlation analyses were conducted using SPSS. Most of the respondents were men, between the ages of 20 and 39, with 1-3 years of teaching experience. They mostly came from the BS Marine Transportation Department and hold operational level positions. The study found that the most common work values of maritime instructors are professional growth, facing new challenges, and personal gratification. The most common factors of attitude towards the work environment are physical setting, emotional setting, and social setting. There was a statistically significant relationship between work values and attitude towards the work environment. The study concluded that maritime instructors have positive work values and attitudes towards the work environment. The findings of the study can be used to develop strategies to improve the work environment for maritime instructors and to enhance the quality of maritime education.
