Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) Call For Evidence: Partial Review Shortage Occupation List -Teachers
In May 2016, the Home Secretary wrote to the chair of the Migration Advisory Committee and commissioned it to examine whether there is a shortage of teachers, or teachers in specific subjects which it would be sensible to fill through non-European Economic Area (EEA) migration. Following on from this, the MAC issued a call for evidence. The Education Workforce Council (EWC) was invited by the committee to provide information to support their review.
The EWC provided a response which gave a Welsh dimension and used valuable data both from the Register of Practitioners, and from practitioner surveys to support their work.
