How will the new non eu migrant settlement rule affect schools?

    As a non-eu migrant myself this rule is concerning. I've only just reached the governments minimum threshold after teaching in England for 10 years. Settlement is usually applied for after 5 years of working with a highly skilled migrant visa at a minimum.
    Indefinite leave to remain (settlement) now has a new steep fee exceeding £2000 too.

    With schools having difficulty filling roles as it is this will only increase the strain. I'm sure there are a few teachers around that were planning settlement in the near future based on the old rules that now face deportation when their work visas expire (or many more costly repeat work visas).

    It seems a strange move, but perhaps they don't expect teachers to remain in post for more than 5 years
