According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), professional collaboration is an important support for teachers working in challenging environments and has been identified as one of the five pillars of teacher professionalism. And some scholars have pointed out that professional collaboration among teachers is one of the important directions of the current education reform. In this study, a multi-level analysis was conducted using Hierarchical Linear Modeling (HLM) to examine the factors influencing teachers' professional collaboration. The study found that: 1) Teachers' self-efficacy did not have a significant effect on professional collaboration; 2) The higher teachers' awareness of teaching beliefs, the more willing they were to collaborate professionally; 3) Teachers' job satisfaction did not have a significant effect on professional collaboration; 4) Teachers' difficulty in collaborating professionally was due to busy work schedules, family responsibilities and lack of incentives; 5) The higher teachers' climate of innovation in teaching, the more willing they were to collaborate professionally; 6) The higher teachers' climate of innovation in teaching, the more willing they were to collaborate professionally; 7) Professional development activities had a negative impact on professional collaboration, as teachers were more likely to participate in their own independent qualification programmes (degree programmes). The study concludes with recommendations to facilitate and promote professional collaboration among teachers.
