According to Tes, the number of English-speaking international schools around the world will increase by two-thirds by 2029 – prompting an 80 per cent rise in teaching jobs, according to a new report.
The Global Opportunities Report, produced by ISC Research, forecasts that the number of such schools will increase from 10,293 at present to 17,368 in ten-years’ time, and that the number of corresponding teaching posts will rise from 506,900 at present to 916,900.
And John Howson, visiting professor at Oxford Brookes University, said recruitment by international schools could worsen teacher shortages domestically if proposals went ahead allowing them to award qualified teacher status (QTS).
