Schools need principals with high-quality leadership to enhance the self-efficacy of teachers to prepare the younger generation with a 21st-century skills. This study aimed to identify the relationship between Learning-Centred Leadership (KBP), Professional Learning Community (KPP), and Teacher Self-Efficacy (EKG) in National Secondary School (SMK) in Sarawak, Malaysia. Another important objective of the study was to identify whether KPP was a mediator between KBP and EKG. A stratified random sampling method was used to determine the study sample. The data were analyzed using the SEM AMOS Version 26.0 and Confirmation Factor Analysis (CFA) involved 794 samples. The findings showed that KBP was found to have a significant relationship with KPP (β = .73, p < .001), whereas KPP had a significant relationship with EKG (β = .54, p < .001). The KPP was found as a full mediator of the relationship between KBP and EKG. The findings imply that school principals who practice KBP will be able to enhance EKG effectively if they promote KPP in schools. The study has provided some useful insights for the Sarawak State Education Department and Ministry of Education Malaysia in planning courses and training programs towards improving the professionalism of school principals and teachers. The study has also added to the literature of KBP, KPP, and EKG in the Malaysian context.
