The UK government needs to find close to 50,000 more school teachers in England by 2024 to manage the predicted increase in student numbers. This means the current teacher numbers need to rise by 20% in that time.
English schools are under stress to source and employ quality teaching candidates to work in their early childhood, primary, secondary and special needs schools all across England. This situation is a huge positive for South African teachers with UK working rights and an interest in teaching in British schools.
