UK to Offer INR 27 Lakh Salary to Indian Math, Science, and Language Teachers: Report

As per a local media source, there is a great need for Indian maths, science, and language teachers in the United Kingdom. To teach such types of subjects, the UK government intends to hire hundreds of foreign teachers through the International Relocation Payments (IRP) scheme. 

The IPR scheme is a relocation initiative that pays individuals more than INR 10 lakh to migrate to England to take up open teaching positions. 

Paul Whiteman, general secretary of the National Association of Head Teachers in the UK, remarked that hiring overseas people is, at most, a short-term solution.

The UK began a one-year trial in March 2023, giving up to 400 of the brightest teachers worldwide an invitation to serve as educators in prestigious schools in the country. Based on a statement from the Department for Education (DfE), this is only one of several alternatives the UK government is looking into to guarantee that every student deserves a great instructor.

What are UK’s International Relocation Payments (IRP)?

For international teachers who have accepted employment offers in the UK, the International Relocation Payments (IRP), which is being assessed in the 2023-2024 academic year, will pay for their visa costs, immigration health surcharges, and other relocation-related costs.

List of Countries Included Under IRP Scheme

The UK government has launched an international recruitment campaign to increase the worldwide supply of educators, under which teachers with degrees in maths, science, and language qualifications from countries including India, South Africa, Singapore, Ghana, Nigeria, Jamaica, and Zimbabwe are being accredited.

IRP Scheme Eligibility for Indian Teachers

Indian teachers must speak English at an advanced university level, possess a bachelor's degree, accept teacher-training credentials, and have at least one year of teaching experience in any of the academic subjects mentioned.

If such educational experts are extended an employment offer that pays them a minimum wage in the UK that corresponds to their job position, typically over 27 lakhs annually, they are qualified to obtain visas to work in the UK.

Around 300 to 400 teachers from the above-mentioned countries are allegedly expected to receive IRPs in the upcoming academic year, as reported by UK officials. If it is successful in drawing in foreign employees, the IPT scheme might be expanded to cover more academic subjects.
