Around 15% of teachers don’t have the qualification required by most of the Royal secondary education establishments in the Wallonia-Brussels Federation (FWB). The Federation is facing a growing lack of staff for certain subjects. Around 2,987 out of the 23,000 teachers don’t have a diploma, La Dernière Heure reported on Thursday. The Namur and Luxemburg provinces are particularly affected. As well as their lack of experience, these teachers often have problems when they are in front of a class, where they struggle to find their place. They often replace other teachers in schools with difficult students.
These teachers are only able to cope for a few months before they give up, as they can’t handle a job they were not prepared for.
Currently, 2,400 teaching positions need to be filled in the FWB.
