The government has confirmed that European teaching qualifications will continue to be recognised in the UK in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
Automatic recognition of professional qualifications is currently protected as part of an EU directive from 2015, which the UK would no longer be subject to if the country left without a deal.
However, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has published new guidance on the recognition of professional qualifications across a range of occupations, including teaching.
The guidance confirms that "The government has amended the 2015 regulations to ensure that there is a system for recognition of qualifications and that professionals arriving in the UK with EEA or Swiss qualifications after exit day will have a means to seek recognition of their qualifications."
