Nigerian instructors are welcomed in the UK.
Beginning in February 2023, Nigerian nationals will be able to apply for qualified teacher status through the Teaching Regulation Agency in the United Kingdom.
The offer is extended to Ghana, Hong Kong, India, Jamaica, Singapore, South Africa, Ukraine, and Zimbabwe, among other foreign nations.
The application for interested non-UK citizens was launched in an early December article on the website of the UK government by its Department for Education.
“The introduction of a new service includes this change.
“To be awarded the QTS, teachers from all qualifying nations must demonstrate that they meet a set of uniform requirements. This method will eventually be made available to competent teachers from every nation outside of the UK.
“You do not need a formal teacher training degree to apply for assessment-only QTS.
But you need to have at least two years of teaching experience,
a first (bachelor’s) degree from a UK or non-UK university, an English language qualification of the same standard as a grade four General Certificate of Secondary Education, a math qualification of the same standard as a grade four GCSE, and a physics, chemistry, or biology (science) qualification of the same standard as a grade four GCSE are all required to teach children aged three to 11 in primary school.
