UCML welcomes the news that the Migration Advisory Committee has recommended that teachers of Modern Foreign Languages are added to the Shortage Occupation List.

The Shortage Occupation List comprises those occupations where recruitment is below required levels, and has implications for the points-based immigration system post-Brexit transition. UCML endorsed a submission of evidence by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Modern Languages demonstrating the need for MFL teachers to be added to this list, and are pleased to see that the Migration Advisory Committee has taken this into account and included MFL teachers in the SOL.

You can read the Commitee’s recommendations in full on the Government website.
