The UK Government has announced a new pilot scheme offering a £10,000 International Relocation Payment (IRP) to eligible non-UK trainees and qualified teachers of languages and physics who wish to relocate and work in English schools.

The IRP payment is designed to cover the costs of visas, the immigration health surcharge, and other relocation expenses, and will be paid around the end of the teacher’s or trainee’s first term, with no need for repayment.

This scheme will offer financial support to trainees and qualified teachers from all over the world who wish to come to England to train and work in English schools. The pilot scheme will be run in the 2023 to 2024 academic year and will be open to applications in autumn 2023 (hopefully September or October).

Eligibility for the scheme requires that teachers or trainees must be coming to England to work or train in the 2023 to 2024 academic year and must not already be living in the UK.

Trainees on fee-paying courses will not need to apply for the IRP. Training providers will pay the IRP directly to these trainees along with any bursaries they are entitled to. Fee-paying trainees should receive the IRP around the end of their first term.

For salaried trainees and teachers, they will need to apply for the IRP themselves from autumn 2023, once they have arrived in the UK and taken up their training place or teaching job. If their application is successful, the Department for Education (DfE) will pay the IRP to eligible salaried trainees and teachers around the end of their first term.

Trainees with places on salaried courses and teachers planning to come to the UK should be encouraged to email the DfE at teach.inengland@education.gov.uk to express an interest in the IRP so they can get updates about the scheme, including when they’ll be able to apply for the payments.

Before any payments are released, the DfE will work with the Home Office to check all visa and immigration requirements and will contact the employing school of non-UK teachers or salaried trainees to check their employment status and teaching subject.

This pilot scheme is part of a number of measures announced in the schools white paper Opportunity for all: strong schools with great teachers for your child. Other measures to attract the best teachers from around the world to come and work in English schools include a new approach to awarding QTS to overseas teachers and a package of bursaries and scholarships now available for non-UK candidates in priority subjects.
