Qualifying to Teach English In Schools

Not obviously sure of what the qualifications are to enable someone to teach a Subject, but being English, the teaching of that here in Norway is of interest.
The ruling now seems to be that all Teachers will have to have qualification in their subject ? Interesting, because to now qualify to teach any language must certainly involve not only the spoken word , but also the written. These will need to be combined now with the correct grammar, not an easy thing to learn in any language let alone English. If the person to Teach the subject is going to be classed as " Qualified" then they have to know the grammar of the English language just the same as the Norwegian.!!
So who is going to Teach the Teacher how to teach English for example. There are I imagine very few people qualified to do that. I would hazard a guess that my wife, being a Qualified English Teacher would be one of very few in Jolster and maybe Sogn.
I do wonder if the government ministers have really thought this through, because as I see it, there will now be virtually no one that is allowed to teach, so what happens now.
Any comments would be interesting to hear.
