The UK has disclosed some of its justifications for seeking to hire teachers from Nigeria and eight other nations.
According to The PUNCH, it was gathered that the UK had listed Nigeria among the list of countries where teachers could apply to teach in the UK.
Ghana, Hong Kong, India, Jamaica, Singapore, South Africa, Ukraine, and Zimbabwe are a few of the additional nations.
Since the nation provides a training program for future migrants, the applicants do not even need need initial teaching qualifications.
In the data for the remunerations, the UK noted, “All qualified teachers will have a starting salary of at least £28,000. This will be higher for teachers working in London. Your school will have their own pay scales for qualified teachers. Pay increases will always be linked to performance, not length of service, and will be reviewed every year.”
A professor of education at the Federal University of Technology in Minna, Alabi Thomas, stated that Nigerian teachers are trained and qualified to take advantage of any chances that arise.
He said, “The only challenge is the poor way in which the government is handling that sector. You see governors who owe salaries of teachers for months. Some don’t get promoted despite putting up years of quality service. This should also be an eye-opener for the government.”
