The world’s best-trained teachers are on their way to becoming a majority of university graduates, according to a new report.
It has emerged that more than a third of the world-renowned universities will recruit their first batch of qualified teachers in 2020, up from around a third in 2019, the OECD said in its latest education report.
As well as attracting talent from all over the world, the report also shows that universities are becoming more adept at integrating international students.
This means that students are becoming less dependent on traditional pathways, including university and apprenticeships.
This has led to the recruitment of thousands of international students in recent years.
The OECD also revealed that there are now more than three times as many international students as in 2015.
The report found that the number of international teachers has increased by 10% in the last decade.
“With a growing number of students arriving at universities in the EU, there are growing opportunities for teachers to work alongside them,” the report’s author, Joerg Ehrmann, said.
“Teachers and students will need to think differently in order to work together in order for the UK to achieve its ambitious ambition of attracting the world as many students as possible.”
