The Migration Advisory Committee has suggested that teachers in special schools and skilled meat boners and trimmers should be added to the shortage occupation list.
If the migration committee's recommendations are accepted teachers in special schools and skilled meat boners and trimmers will be added to the shortage occupation list which means that employers in the UK will be able to recruit migrants without needing a resident labour market test.
Other occupations that The Migration Committee suggests be added to the list are:
- specialised jobs in the electricity transmission and distribution industry;
- some medical specialisms, including higher-level speciality paediatrics trainees; and
- aircraft technicians and fitters
