£35K Earnings threshold for non-EU citizens settling in the UK

The Home Secretary, Theresa May, says that from April 2016 teachers from outside the EU who have stayed here as Tier 2 visa holders since 6 April 2011 must leave the country after 6 years unless they are earning at least £35,000 or are on the shortage occupation list (i.e. Maths/Science secondary school teachers).

The NUT wants the Government to rethink its policy, particularly in the light of the teacher shortage crisis.
