Background and Aim: Since independence, the Botswana education has developed very much, however, the National Commission on Education in Botswana has shown that Teachers are still experiencing some problems which can lead to them quitting the teaching profession. The main objective of this research was to determine the relationship between talent management and teacher's intention to quit in Botswana. Method: A quantitative research approach was followed with data collected from secondary school teachers in Botswana (N=299). A Talent Management Measure and Intention to Quit scale was administered. The data was analysed using SPSS. Results: The results showed the following: • Talent Management practices are poorly applied for teachers with Workforce planning, Performance and Talent Retention practices the most problematic • Teacher perceived that most of the talent management practices are important with Talent Commitment the most important • Significant gaps exist between the current versus the importance of talent management practices Practice Relevance: Currently there seem to be limited empirical research studies on talent management in Botswana. Furthermore not much research has been done to determine the relationship between talent management and turnover intentions of teachers in Botswana The results of this research will assist the Department of Education to detect the talent management problems among teachers in order to prevent turnover.
