Nearly one in six teachers starting in England's schools last year qualified overseas, according to official figures obtained by the Times Educational Supplement (TES).

In the year to March, 6,179 teachers who qualified elsewhere had their qualifications recognised in England, suggests Department for Education data.

This amounts to 16% of 38,746 teachers who gained qualified status that year.

England faces a "major shortage" of teachers, said a head teachers' leader.
