Govt reveals why UK is recruiting Nigerian teachers

The UK has revealed some of the reasons it wants to hire teachers from Nigeria and eight other countries.

According to reports, the United Kingdom has added Nigeria to the list of countries from which teachers can apply to teach in the United Kingdom.

Ghana, Hong Kong, India, Jamaica, Singapore, South Africa, Ukraine, and Zimbabwe are among the other countries represented.

The applicants do not even need to have prior teaching experience because the country provides a training program for potential migrants.

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.”

Commenting on the development, a professor of Education at the Federal University of Technology, Minna, Alabi Thomas, said Nigerian teachers were trained and qualified for opportunities that come their way.

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.”
