It has been announced that Nigerian teachers who migrate to the United Kingdom in February 2023 will attract an annual remuneration of at least £28,000.

The data which was obtained from the website of the government of the United Kingdom,, noted that the salary remunerations would depend on qualifications and the region in which the teacher is applying to teach.

It also offered guidance to non-UK citizens who want to teach in the UK but are qualified outside the European country.

Recall that the UK had in early December listed Nigeria among the African countries whose citizens can now apply for qualified teacher status through the Teaching Regulation Agency in the United Kingdom, from February 2023.

Other foreign countries to which the offer extends include Ghana, Hong Kong, India, Jamaica, Singapore, South Africa, Ukraine, and Zimbabwe.

The applicants do not even necessarily require initial teaching qualifications as the country offers 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 pay scales for qualified teachers. Pay increases will always be linked to performance, not length of service, and will be reviewed every year.”
