This surveillance programme involved combining information on the teaching workforce with information on COVID-19 cases and the effects of COVID-19 on health. We have worked with the General Teaching Council Scotland to establish this work.

This work has allowed us to compare the risk of COVID-19 - including the risk of hospitalisation, admission to intensive care, and death - between teachers and the general public.

As part of the enhanced surveillance the risk of COVID-19 among teachers in Scotland and hospital admission with COVID-19 among teachers compared with healthcare workers and other adults of working age in Scotland, March 2020 to July 2021 population based case-control study.
