London: Here’s good news for Maths and Science teachers in India who wish to relocate to the UK. According to a report in ‘The Times’ newspaper, the British government will give preference to Indians while implementing its scheme to attract Maths and Science teachers from other countries.

The UK government plans to spend British pound sterling (GBP) 10,000 — around Rs 10.1 lakh — per teacher to make the scheme a reality. Apart from India, teachers from Nigeria, Ghana, Singapore, South Africa and Zimbabwe will also be appointed in British schools, said the report.

Teachers gaining appointment as teachers will receive a minimum annual salary of GBP 27,000 (Rs 27.5 lakh).

Under the project, titled ‘International Relocation Payment’, all expenses involved in shifting a teacher from another country to the UK will be met by the British Government. The expenses include visa fees and health surcharge.

For the academic year 2023-24, the UK is planning to appoint 300-400 foreign teachers and a recruitment campaign will be launched soon, said the report.


Teachers wishing to relocate to the UK should possess a degree and teaching qualifications, along with experience of at least one year. They should also have fluency in English of undergraduate standard.
