The UK education jobs crisis could be solved by refugees, according to one expert.
The shortage of qualified teachers is a problem that could be resolved by utilising the skills of refugees, Dr Robert Garnett, the co-chair of the Refugee Teachers Task Force, has said.
Dr Garnett pointed out that refugees are often willing to find employment and give something back to society.
He added that many possess professional qualifications although they may not know how to apply for suitable positions in the UK.
"Refugees are keen to start a new life in Britain, integrate, find work and contribute to our society," he remarked.
Furthermore, specific subjects could benefit from their skills, he noted, adding: "About one in three are highly-skilled and knowledgeable with professional qualifications and could boost the pool of talent available in specialist subjects such as physics and chemistry."
Dr Garnett warned that employers should not overlook such applicants.
The BBC reported last year that many refugees are struggling to find employment because the system is failing them.
