Mosekari v London Borough of Lewisham

Education – Teacher. The claimant was a teacher who had qualified in South Africa. He challenged the defendant local authority's decision that he had not completed the requisite statutory induction period (the SIP) and not to grant him an exemption from that requirement. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that the claimant had failed to complete the SIP, there was no power to grant an exemption and the authority had not acted irrationally or unfairly in refusing to accede the claimant's request to deem that the obligations had been met or to waive such requirement.
