As overseas recruitment was mentioned as one of the solutions to the teacher recruitment crisis in Fife, I was concerned over the impact of Brexit. For this reason I asked about this at the Education and Children’s Services Committee.
Unfortunately as I expected the local authority does anticipate complications. Depending on what happens with Brexit potentially it recruiting vitally needed teachers from abroad could become longer and more complex. Right now there appears to also be a real lack of clarity for Council officers.
Leave a commentConsidering the numbers of teacher vacancies have increased even since the start of the school year, it is imperative that all options are available for recruitment. I therefore call for the UK Government to take consideration of this and come clean at how Brexit will affect our education.
