UK Govt Announces Free Visa, N10m Offer to Nigerian Graduates Ready to Relocate (See Direct Link to Apply)
UK Government Offers £10,000 International Relocation Payment for Nigerian Graduates
Nigerian graduates looking to explore opportunities abroad now have a promising opportunity courtesy of the UK government. In a bid to attract more teachers to England, particularly those specializing in languages and physics, the UK government has unveiled a £10,000 international relocation payment (IRP) for non-UK trainees and teachers willing to work in England.
Qualified Nigerian graduates who possess the expertise to teach languages and physics courses are encouraged to apply for this opportunity before October 31, 2023. The IRP is designed to assist in covering various expenses associated with relocating to England, including visa fees, immigration health surcharges, and other relocation costs.
The key details of this relocation offer include:
Willingness to work in England for the 2023 to 2024 academic year.
Possession of a degree.
Recognized teacher-training qualifications.
A minimum of one year of teaching experience.
Proficiency in English at an undergraduate level.
Eligible Languages for Payment:
Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Urdu.
Eligible Physics Courses for Payment:
Physics, astrophysics, and nuclear physics.
How the Scheme Works:
Fee-paying trainees will receive the IRP directly from training providers along with any entitled bursaries.
Trainees and teachers are encouraged to express interest in the IRP by emailing IRP.ExpressInterest@education.gov.uk if they start their job or course after October 31, 2023. Successful applicants should receive the £10,000 (about N10 million) by January 31, 2024.
Application Deadline: Interested applicants are advised to apply promptly. However, for those who miss the October 2023 application deadline, the UK government plans to open another round of applications in January 2024.
This initiative presents an excellent opportunity for Nigerian graduates to gain international exposure and contribute to the English education system. It aims to bridge the gap between education and employment, making it a win-win situation for both the candidates and the UK education sector.
If you meet the eligibility criteria and aspire to teach in England, don’t miss out on this chance to further your career and explore life in the UK
