For learning processes to be effective, it is very important that educators have effective communication skills and develop their self-awareness in this regard. Determining the effective communication self-awareness of educators will contribute to the literature and guide higher policy practices. This study considers the following questions: Is there a significant difference in effective communication self-efficacy subscale scores according to educators’ task type and gender, years of service and branch? This study uses the scanning model, a quantitative research method. The data collection tool consists of two parts: first, personal information about the educators; second, the scale items of the Effective Communication Self-Efficacy Inventory. The Inventory was consists of 41 items. Four main results were obtained from the findings of this study. A significant difference was found in favor of managers in all three subscales of the inventory.
