The payment is designed to help cover the costs of moving to England, such as visa fees, immigration health surcharge, and other relocation expenses.
A statement from the UK office reads:
“The IRP offers financial support to teachers and trainees from all over the world who wish to come to train and work in English schools.
“It will be paid around the end of the teacher’s or trainee’s first term. It will not need to be repaid.
“If eligible, trainee teachers can receive both the IRP and a bursary or scholarship.
How to apply for IRP
The UK government said that to be eligible, teachers or trainees must be willing to come and work in England for the 2023 to 2024 academic year
Also, interested persons must first visit the UK Teaching website using this link to ensure their certificates match the requirements for teachers and trainees.
How the scheme will work
The statement further noted that the scheme works differently for fee-paying trainees, salaried trainees, and teachers.
“Trainees on fee-paying courses do not need to apply for the IRP. Training providers will pay the IRP directly to these trainees along with any bursaries they are entitled to.
“Teachers and trainees are encouraged to express an interest in the IRP by emailing IRP.ExpressInterest@education.gov.uk if they: Start their job or course after 31 October 2023, while successful applicants should receive the £10,000( about GH₵142,705) by 31 January 2024.”
