inews - Schools told ‘there is no teacher shortage’

"The Migration Advisory Committee, which advises the Home Office what professions should be exempt from immigration laws, has found that there is no evidence of a teacher recruitment crisis. The body said it would recommend that maths and physics teachers be kept on the shortage occupation list, while computer science, Mandarin and general science teachers should be added to it. But added there was no wider recruitment problem facing schools".

The Times (27 January) reports "Schools will be able to hire Mandarin, science and computer science teachers from outside the European Economic Area, after they were added to a national shortage occupation list...The professions join teachers of maths and physics on the list".
