a person entering teaching from another career background

A person with another career background who is encouraged to switch to the teaching profession to help fill a shortage. Unfortunately, there is no easy translation available and some form of explanation is always required. The term 'lateral-entry teacher' has been suggested as a translation option, but is not enough to indicate to the non-Dutch reader what is meant without additional clarification.
