Abstract The objective of this study was to assess the process, causes and outcomes of ill health retirement in teachers in Scotland. A questionnaire on perceptions and experience of occupational health services, access to rehabilitation and redeployment, current health and post retirement experience was mailed to 537 teachers who took early retirement due to ill health between April 1998 and March 2000. Findings highlight substantial lack of support for teachers in a number of areas that need to be addressed by managers and employers. This study confirms the need for rehabilitation and teacher support services in order to retain experienced teachers in the profession.
