Empowering Learning gets foreign teachers in low-skilled jobs back into British classrooms.
Issued on: Modified:
In Britain, qualified teachers from around the world are working in low-skilled jobs, despite a teacher shortage in the country. But a teacher training programme called Empowering Learning is helping people from regions such as sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe and the Middle East get back into teaching in Britain. This unique programme in Hackney in East London provides the course for a fraction of the cost of other courses.
