Teachers Health and Well-being Study Scotland
Throughout Europe, issues of health and well-being have come to be of increasing concern in the contemporary workplace. In an effort to form a baseline picture of teachers' health needs in Scotland, as well as a more strategic view of what could be done to address these growing problems, NHS Health Scotland and the charity Teacher Support Scotland (TSS) with support from the Esmee Fairburn Foundation commissioned research to explore the issue of teachers' health and well being. The explicit aim of the endeavour was to address the 'growing perception in Scotland that there is a need for consistent and systematic support for teachers on a national basis'. The report contains sections on the policy context, a literature review, methodology, and surveys of support for teachers provided by local authorities and other support available.
